In 2006 I startet a travel website called journizer.com with some friends. The goal was to build the ultimative website for individual travelers. The side has some successes but never get the momentum to grow this thing to a successful startup.
Our biggest problem was the vision to build the ultimative site for everything about travel (Blogging, picture sharing, social network, hostel search,…) instead of doing one thing really well. If you want to start any kind of startup make sure you have the one thing in mind you wan’t to really solve for your customers. Don’t try to make everything for everybody.
We learned a lot and had a lot of fun with the site. But finally it’s time to say good-by
