Let’s Get This Party Started….


Twinkle, Twinkle, little Ohio Startup……. How I wonder what…….it feels like to sell a Startup for $1Billion dollars. Up above the…….economy so high, like a Facebook/Groupon/LinkedIn/Evernote in the sky. Twinkle, Twinkle little….Ohio Startup.

So this may not exactly be the lyrics to the young childhood song we are all so very familiar with, but it is my song and one I like to sing, whistle, and hum. One thing I would like to share with the community is that idea’s are like songs. The original song was written by the songwriter for a reason or purpose, but think about the number of times that original song was auto-tuned, remixed, played backwords, or just certain parts of the songs removed and replaced. The point I am trying to make is that even though an idea/song may already exist does not mean that you can’t try to improve upon it and remix it to your own style. What does make a difference is how you execute the idea.

Q. What can you do in 54-hours that can make a lasting impression in your life?

A. Attend a StartupWeekend event in your city and explore the possibility of writing your own songs.
