Prime the pump

“Prime the pump”

Entrepreneurship and starting a ‘Mini Company Concept’ often refers to priming the pump. It’s using a fluid dynamics analogy to CS students. Metaphorically, you miss the subtlety that emotionally, the act of priming, is self-loathing, self-questioning and completely counterintuitive to the uninitiated 

I mean why should you pour a perfectly good bucket of water down the well in the hopes of priming?

Google primed the pump by executing the “goto” business model better than goto. Distributing via Yahoo.
My Harris Bank, Naperville banker primed my small business pump. 


“startup takes a life of its own”
All words that connotate the fact that the pump is primed
