Talk about a house made of cards - you were hardly in it for the long haul were you, where were your cash reserves, backup plans ect.
Why don't you try kicking a bit harder and tell dataguy that he should never have tried establishing his own business...better still all those who criticise for having all their eggs in one basket, well, I can only assume ALL of you were born with a silver spoon in your mouths since you have never created a business from scratch or you wouldn't make such stupid and naive statements.
Quite simply, no one can diversify from day one into "other streams of income" with a new business when, usually, many are being grabbed hard by the balls by greedy bankers or backers.
The guy tried, I'd like to go out with him for a beer, he'd have a far more interesting story to tell than many of you multi-successful, deprecating know-it-alls!
