I was very proud to be along side two seasoned entrepreneurs, Troy Busot and Eric Schedeler. If you haven’t heard of Startup Weekend, check out the website (http://startupweekend.org/). Basically you bring an idea, pitch it, form a team and have 54 hours to launch a startup. At the end of the weekend, teams pitch their ideas and three winners are selected by the judges.

Place matters and the environment is everything.Think about it ... you might go to the library to pick up a good book, but you might not stay there to read. You might work from a coffee shop to meet a friend, but most times, you don't go there to meet a client or work with a team.There are just some environments that are better than others for you to sit down and concentrate and get a lot of work done.
You don't go to the library to read a book.
