"Dear Mom"  Thoughts on Mother's Day   The Family Apron

RE:     The web site

Working on a revolutionary software business is a lonely and sometimes daunting task. 

I find that I kept turning to a Small Business School for inspiration on a regular basis.

Oddly enough, it's not the high tech organizations that I find the most interesting.

I keep coming back to Ken Done and his comments about creativity and creating an accidental business.  I love the clip about putting creativity on a schedule.   And I have to keep reminding myself that I'm not "working" but "playing" at software development.

After seeing the piece on Ken Done, I found myself in Sydney and I just had to travel to The Rocks to take a look at his gallery.  So, you also promote tourism through your work.

My accountant keeps telling me that I need to eventually take in some revenue to make this a real business.  So, I love Hattie's comments during your show about Thomas Keller and the French Laundry that "You can make exactly what you want to make.  You just have to find enough people who want to buy exactly what it is you?re making."

I've got to keep a marketing plan on the back burner until the software is ready.

Who would have thought that a software engineer and entrepreneur would find inspiration from a painter and a chef.  You find inspiration in odd places indeed.

I think Small Business School is a great bargain for access to all the episodes and clips.

Diversity inspires creativity

While the people of the world struggle to co-exist, here are many workplaces where the dynamics of creativity override the deep historic tensions between cultures and religions. Creativity focused on creating something of value, monetized and extended in time, is far more valuable to people than the weight of historic prejudice, bigotry and even hatred. Herein is the spirit of hope and the future.
