Most folks write about their start up/growth experiences in an article or a book celebrating their arrival or being celebrated for their impact on an industry or cause. For many these are memories that are matter of fact or "oh yeah, I remember that". These folks don't have the awareness that you seem to have. You have the vision, both forward and peripheral to avoid obstacles and simultaneously have the presence of the present to recognize and appreciate to current moment of breakthrough or potential breakthrough.

I admire that.

Interestingly, Judge Michael A. Shipp, a fraternity brother of ours and Asst to the DA in NJ at the time, spearheaded the state's case against Blockbuster's late fees leading to their removal. Blockbuster took the credit for the idea but we know better.

Lastly, as a former Art Director and having been in the design and printing industry for 25 years I applaud you. I have tried and failed at expanding. When it got hard I took a position at a firm.

I work at home. It is not as easy or fun as it seems. Convenient? Yes. Easy commute? Yes. However the opportunity to shake hands and build a business cannot be at home. Keep plugging. We are excited to watch your journey.



Thank you for taking the time to read my post and I can tell that you can identify and relate. I appreciate the candid feedback, as I have promised to keep my blog 'real' so that others may be inspired to keep pushing forward to make their dreams happen. I've been working from home for the last 4 years, and part of the struggle is that its become the familiar. Its nice and cozy and has all the bells and whistles I need, but for me to take my business to the next level, and bring my vision to life, it will take these kinds of leaps forward. I will still work from home at times, but my new digs will only be a bike ride away and I look forward to filling it with talent and cranking out good work. I truly appreciate the feedback frat.
