Checkers and chess. Both are games of skill. Both have winners and losers. While they share the same playing surface, if you sit down with a friend to play, it’s entirely clear which set of rules you should be using, based on the pieces on the board. In business, it’s not that simple. It’s Monday […]
So why, exactly, have I chosen to take to the task of recording words here, now on some regular basis? Related: what guides my choice of subject? A few words on these questions follow.

So, whether you're an entrepreneur looking for specific ideas on how to put your vision into practice, an investor looking for an experienced advisor or board member, a friend, colleague, or simply someone curious about what a fellow human thinks... Welcome!
