Let's Find Out...

I am shameless, lazy, or just too demanding on myself.

Long story short, this blog actually started long time ago, I wrote numerous drafts and never published. I thought I really had not much to contribute to the ocean of noise this world has become. But in my defense, the real reason has been time; or better, I just never thought my time was worth committing to showcasing something I wasn't sure was all that relevant - my views, experiences, etc. 2 kids and a startup don't leave a lot of room for blogging. So why am I posting now? Not that now I have more time, on the contrary, but I believe my recent experiences as an entrepreneur are worthy of mention and my overall track record might be unique enough for my opinions and thoughts to count - I guess we will find out, wont we?!?!

We have been going through some pretty harsh times and is a now reality. This after a lot of blood, sweat, and tears. Yep, I know this sounds corny, but it's truthful. We've been through hell and back and it's not getting any better. The only way I can put the statement about blood sweat and tears in perspective is to say that it's like when you are going to have the first kid and people tell you your life is going to change, people even give you the details and go through the trouble of explaining why. But until it happens there is no way you get it. Well...this whole startup experience has been like that. I had started 4 other companies before and participated in the start of 2-3 more. But until I decided to go about it in a big way, I just did not get it. If you check my resume (linkedIn) you can see what I am talking about. I did a couple of things here and there, but this whole startup experience is as they say "a different ball game" (I can use sports analogies because after all KlickSports is all about sports :).

Besides, sharing my thoughts and experiences turns out to be somewhat valuable - people started asking for it.

Let's find out, shall we?
