Now that my wife has her new job and is working out of the house more, and now that the girls are both nearly grown I’m seriously thinking of taking three days, maybe even a whole week, and going up to Devil’s Fork with nothing but a stack of manila note pads, some pens, a sketchbook, my fishing pole and my revolver. Take some groceries too.

By finding a community of like-minded entrepreneurs that are eager to share ideas and the ups and downs, success is accelerated and emotions modulated.
