Just sitting here in Logan Airport having wrapped up my trip to Boston. The fog is rolling in and flights are all screwed up, so I have just a little spare time on my hands… I thought about throwing some milk in the harbor to go with all that tea, but I’m not sure the Queen would approve of my actions, so I’ll behave…
It’s been a great trip with some solid meetings. Thanks to all the folks I met with and to the guys at the ever-wonderful Square 1 Bank for helping to facilitate some of those meetings.
As my last meeting of the day, I got to meet up with Will Herman, the author of the 2-Speed Blog. If you don’t read it, you should. Will is (a) very smart, (b) very successful and (c) a fun guy to talk to. He has a ton of posts on the nuts and bolts of running a business, in particular how to address problems and deal with difficult situations. He was also an early investor in Harmonix, the company that made Guitar Hero, and how cool is that!
Will’s responses to comments I left on his blog were also what inspired me to start writing this blog. I suppose that could be considered a detriment to his credibility, but I’m grateful for his feedback.
The other good news from this trip is that we finally have a clear pitch that people seem to understand. Of course, that means I’ll be re-writing the beloved business plan one more time, but that’s okay. This time, I’m really really ready… So bring it on.
