Dealing with Vulnerability

Inspired by Seth Godin’s blog, I’m going to try to have poignant entries for this week rather than anything long winded or visually entertaining to fill in the blanks.  Isn’t that really what’s a blog all about?  A splatter of your own thoughts instead of a pieced together thoroughly referenced piece of writing?  Who knows.

All I know is for the first time since starting this venture I am feeling vulnerable. (more…)


OC Google Glass Event and Warehouse Updates

REAL QUICK, my nigg@s.

The other day my friend Dennis Cabarroguis wrote to me detailed in the below note:

“Hi Kim,
I remember you were going to launch a used or aftermarket car parts marketplace? Are you still planning to go forward with it? I know a dev team that is awesome but best of all, local. Let me know if you are interested in meeting with them.

In the meantime, Im hosting this cool Google Glass event next week by John Wayne Airport. Hope you can make it. And please spread the word.

my best, Dennis”

told me about his google glass event.  Dennis is .. as his Linkedin explains an “Experienced self-starter with an entrepreneurial mindset and exceptional and proven organizational, product/project/program management and strategic partnership skills.”  So basically he rocks at entrepreneurship stuff.  I told him I would not need his resources till months later because I do not need to worry about the technology when I am just setting the groundwork for now.  But as for his event… I was like hells yeah, I’m going to help him promote the shit out of it.

The Real Hours of a Non-Disruptive Startup

Some of my friends have asked me what exactly is it that I do… dance around in my warehouse all day?  (I secretly grow a warehouse filled with weed, after all, they don’t call this the “high” desert for ain’t no good reason).

GOT YOUR ATTENTION NOW? ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!?

Don’t be silly.

There are two types of start ups and two types of entrepreneurs (or so I’ve been schooled).  Of course there might be more but that isn’t relevant to this post.

Have you ever thought to yourself while you are reading an email… “I would really like this EMAIL to be magically UNREAD at some point later on in my life and re-sent back to me just so I can read it again”?

This could be anything from a reminder to yourself to buy that extra apple at the grocery store, a notice of your eviction date from your tech savvy landlord, a letter from the Nigerian prince you built a deep connection via online communication and wanted to follow up on, a bill reminder from Mint.com, to an email newsletter from me with great important tips you’d like to revisit…….. It could be anything in the world.

But the reality of life dawns on you: once something is “marked as read”, you will never revisit it.  It will be lost the oblivion of your inbox and you are absolutely helpless to remind yourself unless you take the desperate measures of physical sticky notes or alarm clock notices.

WELL SAY NO MORE.

You now have Boomerang.  Boomerang is ingenious because it can tie itself to a couple of the most wildly used mail applications – gmail and outlook.  Surprisingly the version for gmail is a separate company than the outlook one.

The outlook one has a $29.95 one time fee while the gmail boomerang has different tiers ranging from free to $14.99/month.
