Asshole To CEO, #2: Owning Up To My Business Failures

“How empty is theory in the presence of fact!”
― Mark Twain

It’s so fucking easy to blame other people for your problems.

It’s what I did for a long, long time: blame everyone else for everything, and never take ownership of my decisions and actions and how they impacted my own life.

Why I Stopped Angel Investing (And You Should Never Start)

I started angel investing almost by accident, which sounds strange to say. Who “accidentally” invests tens of thousands of dollars into highly speculative ventures? Well, I did.

A friend introduced me to Clayton Christopher, who was raising money for his new liquor company Deep Eddy. Their first product, a sweet tea vodka, was amazing and he was an experienced entrepreneur, so I went in.

RIP, Seth Roberts

Last night, I found out that my friend Seth Roberts passed away.

You may not have known Seth, you may not even have known who he was, but he was a very important person to the lives of many people.
