Fighting a cold today – so brain on ‘very slow’ setting. Or maybe that is the normal setting.
Had EO Forum today and it was very good – nice to see everyone and hear how things are going. Gathered some inspiration from just a few comments and some goings on in the group – so good energy (although my energy is low today).
I begun the process of forming new US company, and the Chinese company today – so will be moving with that over next weeks.
I have also been ‘sleeping on’ my pitch – and today outsourced by ‘sketch’ of the RedStores Ventures story to Elance. Planning to use 3 or 4 designers to get this visually represented in different ways and see how I can communicate out the whole ‘business plan’ in just 5 slides. You think it would be easy, but its actually not. My sketch of ‘Restores’ pitch is below. I’m sure I could close on that sketch alone, but with a bit of extra work now, I’m going to make my life a heck of a lot easier. The target raise is $2MM – which will give us a very aggressive 2 year run.
Also, I have begun the process of outsourcing the personal site for Pecce. While in Hainan, I had offered to help Pecce with his personal site – and it has been nice to get to the ‘roots’ – site design, outsourcing, etc. – simple, easy and fun.
Its 11:30PM – almost wrapping up for the day – but want to finish a bit of research on the number of suppliers on TaoBao and Alibaba.
