Garrett Dimon spoke recently at what I heard was a wonderful Refresh Dallas “reboot” event. Unfortunately I missed it, but Garrett posted some excellent slides about his experiences bootstrapping Sifter, a bug tracking app during one of the busiest times in his life. It’s full-time for him now.

What’s fascinating is the story about a startup that’s reasonably successful but by no means hit it out of the park amazing where he sells the business for millions of dollars and retires to a beach1.
