in Startup

July 23: A Change to Regular Programming

When I set out to build my startup in January, we moved to Spain to immerse in the culture, learn the language and extend my startup runway by 4 month. I knew I would have to revisit how I would fund our continued stay in Spain and how I might continue to explore my startup. Quite fortuitously, one of my close consulting partners offered me a coaching engagement in my old haunt – Galway.

So here I am, in Galway Ireland , doing something I am very comfortable doing (and arguably pretty good at it too). I shall be here for 5 weeks working with people who are very good at what they do and trying to help them harness that goodness and focus it on greatness.

Here is my check in:

  • Sad that I’m not in Spain. I’m in Galway, on my own, far from my loves.
  • Glad that I will focus on startup tasks as my night job – once the initial chaos of training and fatigue wear out.
  • Sad that there do not appear to be any Spanish language meetups over the summer in Galway.
  • Glad that I have 50mb/sec internet in my accommodation.
  • Glad that I reached out to a few people about reviewing my blog post on Customer Service and Social Media – why it sucks. Thank you @joneversett and @joshkehn for taking the time to read the early draft and offer such rich and considered feedback which helped me improve the post.
  • I’m grateful for the abundance of learning all around and the capacity to learn from it.

I’m in.

Everything becomes clearer in time. Though you might not live long enough to see it. Seek clarity now.
