The Non-Fun Hard Parts
"Laugh and the world laughs with you. Take out the garbage, and you walk alone"
- The Wizard
I got an email from a would be entrepreneur asking if there were people or companies you could use to handle the "painful and non business related" parts of starting the company so that this person could focus on the business and product.
There are certainly companies to which you can outsource aspects of company creation cheaply and productively, and particularly if you're a very small one or two person operation that's bootstrapping things, these kinds of services can be very useful. My worry about the email, however, was with the belief that the non-product specific tasks of company formation were "non business related". In reality, the first months/year of the business are about the highest percentage of working on the product you'll get. If you're already thinking there's too much "non fun stuff" involved in starting a company, you might want to consider a) multiple co-founders so you can be product guy and somebody else can run the company or b) not starting a company.
The other benefits to tackling a lot of these non-product pieces of company creation yourself is that you might find it interesting, helpful, and even important down the road to understand the details behind things like why you'd choose an LLC over an S-Corp, what the details of your office lease tell you, why phone systems are so damned expensive, etc. Finally, even if you do bring somebody else in to handle all these "details", if you adopt a posture early on that you don't like to get your hands dirty, I predict trouble down the road including but not limited to general pain and suffering with periods of poverty, acrimony, and finger pointing. It's fine to move into a product specific role when there are more people in the company, but in the early days you're going to have to take out the garbage a lot, and nobody's going to want to hear you talk about how great it was that you just took out the garbage.
