I’ve been at this blog since 2007. A tech savvy friend of mine sent me an email (DMs weren’t big back then) informing me I had to try this new blogging platform called Tumblr. More interested in the securing of a choice user name than actually starting a new blog, I signed up.
461 posts later, this blog has gone through a number of iterations. It’s been personal, promotional, personal promotional, observational and orthogonal. Mainly its had one consistent reader. Me.
I’m an entrepreneur. An idea guy. I can’t shake it. It’s not in my brain to think about being something else in my work existence. Or maybe it is and I’ve just locked off the part of my brain that seeks consistency and a less risky way to earn a living for my family.
Every company started starts with an idea. Ideas usually evolve through the participation of multiple minds but every idea begins as a seed in one mind. From there begin the pivots. Iterations, big and small. Some result from collaboration. Some are dictated by pressures applied by timing, the market, investors, or the original participants. What emerges from the ground is very rarely the species that was planted.
On this space, today is one of those pivots. I am going to focus more on the journey of entrepreneurship, its seasons and chapters, and the lessons I’ve learned as a result of choosing this way of life.
