“What if the real key to a richer and more fulfilling career was not to create and scale a new start-up, but rather, to be able to work for yourself, determine your own hours, and become a (highly profitable) and sustainable company of one? Suppose the better—and smarter—solution is simply to remain small? via Company of One”

Sounds quite a playbook, doesn’t it? Amid all the talks of finding a product-market fit, growth hacking revenues from $0 to $1 million, $10 million and beyond, a rare breed of entrepreneurs are finding a path to inner peace.

Aditya has spent the past decade working across fast-growing startups, being an entrepreneur himself and failing too. He is now applying all the lessons and realisations he has gathered over the years to redefine his life and work.

I was amazed to read his blog “Our Hardcore Year – getting to 1000$ MRR” for its bkunt honesty and refreshing insights.

In this podcast, Aditya (Founder – Kaapi) shares why it makes sense to get off the funding and growth treadmill, and find a way to staying sane apart from a sustainable livelihood.

After raising around $5 million, kind of failing later with his startup, Aditya started realizing he wasn’t enjoying it much. Entrepreneurship had started feeling like a burden
for him.

“I was 4 years into it and really burnt out. I just couldn’t carry on….it kind of started feeling that I was doing it just for the sake of it. Because I was supposed to be an entrepreneur and keep going….I just couldn’t do it.”

Listen to this podcast to learn from Aditya’s playbook of path to $1000 MRR (Monthly Recurring Revenue), and also, why it makes sense to stay small and stay sane.
