Back on the Grid

Wow, it’s been an extremely intense past 2.5 months in Startupland. I haven’t written since December and I really miss the therapy in it. Why no writing? I’ve been channeling all my professional energy and mind share into working through a critical stage in my company’s development (which we are still in), and I’ve been hesitant to write about it transparently given the confidential nature of the issues I face everyday. While I’m a huge fan of complete transparency, it’s not my place to share these details (despite my desire to do so), especially the unflattering, unsexy, fall-on-your-face realities of building a company when partners and customers have access to them. So I’ve struggled with what to write about and in what level of detail such that its useful and insightful and, most important, so that others can learn from the tough stuff.
But I’m back! And committed to striking a balance in what I share. In the past 8 weeks, I literally have 20 topics listed that correlate directly to challenges, learnings, failings, big wins and the emotional roller-coaster that is my life right now. I can point to several days when I had feelings of unsurpassed confidence and outright despair – in the same day!
I’m anxious to share more and will over the coming days and weeks, at least once each week.
