How to convince a software engineer to join your early-stage tech startup.
By Edward Kim (Senior Engineer, Triptrotting)
Almost once a week, I get a random phone call, email, message, etc. It goes something like this: “Hey Eddie, I’ve got this million dollar idea. I just need a programmer to make it.”
Before I go on any further, if you’re an engineer, I’m sure this already sounds familiar to you.
“I checked and there’s nothing like this out there. It’s sort of like Facebook but better. It’s like Facebook meets Twitter meets Google! Well? What do you think? We’ll go 50/50 on this. You handle the programming, I handle the business side of things.”
March 8 may be International Women’s Day but we are celebrating women all week, year long!

This week, we highly respect Sara Blakely for joining Forbes’ World Billionaire’s list thanks to her company Spanx. The 41 year old is the youngest person on the list – and worth ten figures without the aid of a husband or an inheritance, and she still owns 100% of the company she founded in 2000.
