Yes, I know — my blogging has suffered in the last few weeks.
To our TeachStreet investors, trust me when I say that that’s a good thing. What it means is that we’re pushing extremely hard to meet our self-set goals. And, we’ve made incredible progress, and are still on pace for our launch aspirations (with regard to quality, coverage and timing).
To friends and family, I’m doing my best! If you haven’t heard from me, it’s not because I haven’t thought of you. Nor is it because I’d prefer to not be with you. Rather, it’s because this creation is a lot of work. I probably told you that I expected it to be hard, but I’ve always been one to learn by doing, as you know.
Which leads me to a post from Seth Godin that I thought was apt — he talks about how with new/important creations (in his post, he’s referring to the iPhone… in our case, we’re talking about our much more humble undertaking, TeachStreet) there are always many times where it would be much easier to just say “forget it”, and everyone would breathe huge sighs of relief, and move on.
However, we don’t do that — we can’t do that. We know the risks, and the odds of failure. But we also know how great it would be to make our dreams a reality. And how much hard work, stress, and yes… fun… it is, to give it a herculean effort.
So, that’s why my posting’s been more sporadic. See you in a few years 😉
