A while back, I mentioned that I had co-founded a startup (LiveTheLook); I'm saddened to report that just after Halloween, my co-founder and I split up, and I'm no longer affiliated with the company except as an adviser and equity shareholder. There were a lot of reasons for the split, most notably that we had some different ideas on how to execute and how to spend the limited seed money we'd managed to acquire, but overall, we just weren't communicating well.
While I'm sad to no longer be involved with LtL, I wish Francesca and the company nothing but success for the future, and in the meantime I'm exploring options and figuring out what my next great adventure will be. It's not the greatest time of the year (the "dead zone" between Thanksgiving and Christmas) to be doing it, but fortunately I've gotten a few leads that may turn out to be hits. We'll have to see. And, while we're sorting that out, I've got plans for things to work on in the meantime, including a partnership effort with my eldest son on a game he invented.
So, what I'm saying here is that if anyone's desperate for consulting, now's a great time to reach out, because I can be bought. :-)
