Welcome to Startup Junkies
The focus of Startup Junkies is the startup stage which, by our definition, includes both opportunity identification and launch.
If you’re an entrepreneur who needs to get going fast with a new venture and wants to learn from others, this is the place for you.
We bring together both the theory and practice of successful startup entrepreneurship.
While our backgrounds are in the technology sector, the lessons shared here will be beneficial to almost any entrepreneur.
Our preference is for creating low-cost startup strategies so that the chump’s game of chasing outside capital can be avoided.
Since 2004 Startup Junkies has been designing, managing, and curating a world-class ecosystem of entrepreneurs, angel investors, venture capitalists, academics, mentors, advisers, consultants, and partners, in which it applies the best practices in everything from execution to deployment, launch, funding, growth, and exit.
They’re back! Find the link to the free treasures which typically include ebooks, courses, and other items such as audio/videos materials for small businesses. It’s well worth your time. Gifts will vary over time.
Congratulations to Hobi Michalec of Domain Holdings Group for winning the Moronic Spammer of the Year Award!
Here at Startup Junkies, we really don’t like domain squatters. It’s a scummy line of work consisting of grabbing domains that could be put to good use by entrepreneurs and trying to sell them at rip-off prices. Oftentimes these losers will sit on a domain for a decade or more hoping that a sucker finally comes along who will buy it from them.
However, there is something even worse than a lowlife domain squatter. It’s a low life domain squatter who repeatedly spams you even though you have stated clearly on your site that you are not interested in being spammed by them. To fight spam, we put up a Contact Form which reads:
Need to get hold of us?
Please use the form below and understand that due to the volume of messages we cannot respond to every one.
Do not send us info on domains you have for sale. TIA
See the Contact Form here. That last line is intended to tell spammers like Hobi Michalec to not spam us.
Your average cat would get the point but not this Einstein. This is just his latest bit of spam to us:
More Bad News for Google Plus
Imagine that you are the most powerful entity on the Internet. You are the middleman between the world’s buyers and sellers. The consumer buyers number in the billions. The corporate sellers number in the millions. You bring them together daily through billions of searches. As a result you are ranked as the #1 site on the Internet.
You then come out with another me-too social networking platform because you resent the success of Facebook. The only problem is that you’re a day late and a dollar short, as the old saying goes. The public is underwhelmed by Google Plus, to say the least.
So you decide to go Tony Soprano on them and issue threats:
Ignore Google Plus and Google search will ignore you. - Larry Page, Google CEO

How could anyone call this guy an idiot? Just look at him:
Is there anything more annoying than not being able to register on a site or blog unless you are willing to associate the account with a Facebook account?
We don’t think so.
While we are at it, it there a worse site on the Internets than Facebook?
We don’t think so.
No one has done more to destroy your privacy than Zuckerberg’s outrageous data-mining operation. Well, may be the NSA has.
