A few years ago, I saw a tweet that has stuck with me. Someone asked what was the best way to fund a new company. The person replied “Customers.”

There are a few routes you can go when you start a business. You can find investment, fund it yourself, fund it with presales, and so on. And each method will be different for each business you start.

With Campground Booking, Heath had a few false starts. He tried going to an angel investor, partnering with an existing company to fund development, and ultimately landed on bootstrapping.

In this final Startup series podcast, Heath shares why he decided to bootstrap the company and how that decision has affected the business and his personal life.
