A special thank you to our Business Advisor

I want to take this moment to thank our Business Advisor.  His name is John Feeney, and he is a founding member of an angel investment group.  He’s been in business and investing since almost before I was born.  I met him by taken one of his classes he teaches on starting a new business, and after after an initial meeting to go over my business plans, we hit it off.  He’s been a pleasure to work with, and a wonderful mentor.  I’ve learned a lot from him, and appreciate his guidance, insight, and moral support through this difficult and time consuming process.

Don’t let anyone tell you different that starting a business is easy.  More specifically, creating a “successful” business.  I’m not calling this venture successful yet, but I’m realizing more and more that to become successful, it requires a lot of work, research, and education.

Thanks again John, and I’m looking forward to more great progress, with an eventual “sign on the door” that says: “open for business”.

Our First Meeting With Our Business Advisor

We had our first meeting with our business advisor today. He’s really awesome and generous with his time. He’s a co-founder of an angel investment group, and will be a great asset to help us get off the ground. We gave him our business plan for his review to see if we are on the right track.

We also learned a lot. It was almost too much to put down. One of the highlights that came up was putting together an “advisory” board. This is simply a group of people that are support of your business idea, and can bring something to the table (so to speak), either experience in a particular industry or other useable skills. At the beginning, they will not be anything more than advisors/supporters, however, in the future, there is a possibility of either stock or other investment opportunities.

I already named my friends Eric Bram, and Dariush Derakhshani to the board. Both have already been extremely supportive.
