Starting a company from scratch can be a lonely experience; I've always worked with someone, if only as a sounding board and fellow after work drinker. So, if I was just doing Project V from my home office in the Welsh mountains I'm pretty convinced that I would drive both the cat and myself crazy very quickly.
One particularly difficult element of an online business is that there are long hiatuses whilst software is being developed.
Thankfully, I have many other commitments that get me out and about and keep me occupied. Indeed, these I take more seriously than Project V since I'm both passionate about the companies I've got involved with and feel a great responsibility where others are involved.
Still, I have a newfound respect for people who go out on a limb and do it all themselves from a room at home. It seems idyllic during a morning commute on a packed train, but it's not as easy as it seems.
