Two most important factors for my productivity

There are thousands of books and blog posts looking for a magic pill of productivity. They offer you an endless number of time management hacks in order to help you be productive. Instead, however, they often add a lot of small tasks to your to-do list that you can easily complete to feel productive, but […]

The right approach to validate your idea during Startup Weekend

No problem – no startup. Every successful startup solves a problem. Without a problem, there is no solution and therefore no business. If you want to succeed on Startup Weekend, you’ll have to quickly validate that your idea solves a real problem in order to have enough time to build the right prototype and prepare the […]

Ako vyriešiť last-minute zrušenie rezervácie cez AirBnb

Chaos, stres a panika. Takto nejako sa môžeš cítiť keď máš kúpenú letenku na druhý koniec sveta a pár dní pred odletom ti zrazu zrušia dohodnuté ubytovanie cez AirBnb. Aj keď je AirBnb super a vo väčšine prípadov je to pre mňa lepšie riešenie ako hotel, takéto situácie sa stávajú. No netreba podliehať panike. Mne raz […]

The Only Important Rule In 2016

I don’t like the New Year’s resolutions. In most cases, they are just wishes that never come true. I prefer having things organized and making realistic plans. For the past 6 years, I’ve been looking back at the year just ended, summarizing in and roadmapping – Is it even a word? It should be… – the new one. I […]

Don’t do startups that everyone likes

Let’s admit it. When you tell someone about your idea, you want them to like it. You are wired to crave for being liked all the time, whatever you do. And I’ve been the same, for now. I decided to change it, because I realized how toxic those words – “I LIKE IT!” – are. […]

How I Delivered My First University Lecture

A long time ago, there was one very wise man who said that the best way to learn is to teach – “docendo discimus“. His name was Seneca and he lived in ancient Rome two thousand years ago. Have you ever realized how right he was? I have. And because of that, I’ve always been happy to help others. […]

Business Model Canvas for Google Docs

Are you searching for the Business Model Canvas that you want to share with your remote team, or just take with you whenever you want? I was searching as well and couldn’t really find one. Of course, there are some apps or templates, but neither of them were really simple to use. So I logged […]

4 things that I learned in 2014

Each year, at the end of December, I like to look back at the year, summarize it and set a roadmap for the following one. It’s a great tradition that my wife came up with 5 years ago (thanks love). It helps me see how successful am I at living my life. This summary, however, is only […]

Launch startupu nie je najväčší milestone

Začiatkom jesene som bol plný očakávaní. Mali sme naplánovaných veľa nový vecí. No nevedeli sme úplne odhadnúť, ako môžu dopadnúť. Okrem toho, že sme boli zvedaví ako sa uchytí Sara a Dennis ako naši growth managers, čakala nás jeseň plná konferencií a business developmentu v USA. Boli sme na to pripravení, kedže produkt sa nám […]
