In May I was the organiser and marketer of a public event that managed to attract a crowd of 400 people in four days. Overall, most things around the event organisation and execution went perfectly, and most people had the experience we set out for them to have.
But if you are a *tiny* bit of control freak like me, most things and most people aren’t really good enough.

Lately we have had first meetings with potential investment opportunities, and they have been an interesting and mixed bunch.

I cringed when in one of my first MBA classes we were introducing ourselves and one of the guys in the class described himself as” an entrepreneur”. People looked impressed till someone asked him what he did… He ran a car cleaning franchise. Not exactly my definition of an entrepreneur.
