When someone asks me for the best way to fund a startup, I always say bootstrap it, meaning fund it yourself and grow organically. Bootstrapping avoids all the cost, pain, and distractions of finding angels or VCs, and allows you to keep control and all your hard-earned equity for yourself.

The idea of bootstrapping a business, a favorite subject of mine since I once edited a blog on the topic, is critically important in today's economy. In fact, I'm often amazed how ideas like using a virtual office, especially in the case of an online business, is not simply a given. Businesses need to learn to do more with less. Bootstrapping is not a new idea. It's been used to build highly successful companies. And it is a great strategy to build a strong business in a time when resources are limited.
