Money – SaaStr
Bootstrapping is not always an option, in fact in most cases it's not an option. Look at the statistics, how many startups have you seen doing exceptionally well without raising funds?
I can think of Basecamp as one example but even there Jason (fried...) took investment from Bezos at some point.
balsamiq is another good example.
Both of those company are making millions in net profit every year, both have relatively small headcount and both are bootstrapping. This is the exception to the rule in my opinion.

What are some of the paradigm shifts your company has made to fully benefit from remote working?

At a certain point over-communicating for the purposes of keeping up with everything became more trouble than it was worth. We are now more selective in our communication, to allow employees to focus on their work.

What did you start doing differently to safeguard the success of your remote team?

Reassessing our tools regularly. As we grew, our communication tools needed to evolve to suit the company we were becoming. This is probably not needed as often with an onsite workforce.

7 Business Talks That Have Made Me a Better Entrepreneur (Plus, a Special Offer)
2) Coding Is The Easy Part (Peldi Guilizzoni)
Peldi is the founder of Balsamiq, which I use daily, and respect tremendously as a business.

While the title of the talk might be a bit misleading, the spirit of it is really, really important: there’s a lot more to running a business than making a product.

Things that most early entrepreneurs don’t think about (from your external ecosystem to company policies on vacation, salary, internal communications and more). This stuff matters more than you might think.

And at the end of the talk, he asks the audience for help. I love the transparency, vulnerability and message of “I might be up here doing the talking, but I’d love to learn from you, too”. It’s a lesson that I try to put into practice on this blog every week.

What is a 'Minimum Vacation' Policy? | Adavow
Several high-profile companies like Balsamiq, Travis CI, and Baremetrics have now implemented minimum vacation policies to ensure their employees are actually getting out of the office and recharging their batteries.
A great definition of a minimum vacation policy was penned by Cameron Moll, founder of @authenticjobs.
“What I’ve turned my attention to recently is a “minimum vacation policy” for lack of a better phrase. In lieu of unlimited vacation, and in contrast to traditional vacation policies which focus on maximum days off, I’m intrigued by idea of requiring employees to expend a minimum number of vacation days each year to ensure their working (and personal) health remains strong. Beyond the minimum requirement, additional time may be taken off as needed.”
Cameron goes on to say, “The reason I think this policy may — and it can only be proven after we try it for a year or two —be more effective is it prevents employees (and co-workers for that matter) from worrying about how much time they’re taking off. Employees will know the company expects them to take off at least a certain number of days, and beyond that, time as needed.”

How to Get Employees to Actually Take Vacation
Instead of focusing on maximum time off, or the newer, flashier “unlimited vacation time,” some companies are mandating a minimum number of vacation days. At Authentic Jobs, the minimum mandatory vacation time is twelve days. At HubSpot, it’s two weeks. At Balsamiq, it’s twenty days. Generally, there’s no formal consequences for not using your mandatory vacation time. But, according to Balsamiq founder Giacomo Guilizzoni, “It instills an opposite kind of guilt: If I don’t take my 20 days I will set a bad example for my team.”
