I do in fact read
every email I get!
And respond to just about everything.
It doesn’t always happen immediately, and when I reply it’s usually short and sweet (I get a lot of mail). But if you’ve got a real question, and I’m the guy to answer it, I’d love to hear from you.
I’m especially interested in:
Mentoring: I got a lot of support as a struggling entrepreneur, and after six startups my main focus now is passing that support along, and helping others to succeed. I know first-hand how hard it is to get ideas off the ground, and I’m happy to offer advice on this score (although I hate advisory boards). Being genuinely helpful takes a big investment of time though, so I’m picky about which organizations I work with. But I’m always looking to meet new ones.
Hearing your pitch: I do occasional seed-stage angel investment, but be warned that I’m a little old-fashioned about it. I like to understand what I’m investing in, and I take my time making decisions. So if you’re a low-energy Bluetooth company, your round is oversubscribed, and you need a decision tomorrow…I’m definitely not your guy. On the other hand, if you’re doing e-commerce, a two-sided network, or a subscription businesses–and you have a little patience–we should talk.
Reading your comments: If you’ve got something to say in response to anything I’ve written or said in these pages, you’re welcome to send it to me here. But a better place to do that is right there in the comments section. I promise I read every word, and I’ll usually engage with you right there.
Talking to your group: If you think I might be a good choice to speak to your group, I’d love to hear about it. But don’t ask me here. You’ll get a much faster–and more accurate–answer by going directly to the source: contact firstname.lastname@example.org and they’ll be able to answer whatever questions you’ve got about my availability, topics, fees, etc.
Having you read my book: If you’re interested in getting a copy of That Will Never Work, then I commend your excellent judgement. Just click here.
If you just want to stay up to date on what I’m doing, there’s a mailing list for that. If you’re looking for something that isn’t listed here, just drop me a quick note on this form, and I’ll try and point you in the right direction.
