From Justin:

The goal of bootstrapping is not to change the way people behave.

I liked this article on some of the motivation differences between bootstrapping and VC funding.

I’d wager that there are more people that end up successful out of bootstrapping. No not in the make a billion dollars and start a space company successful. The type of successful that lets them do what they want and live a comfortable life.

We may idolize one type of success, but the other is much more achievable for 99% of the population.
