The readership may be a bit curious about my online absence of late.
Well folks, I've been occupied with my new duties as Managing Editor for hiVelocity, a weekly online publication that covers Ohio's entrepreneurial, tech and start up communities. I am beside myself with joy over this.
Where do I start? How about with some of what we're featuring this week:
--I love that Cleveland Cavs Owner Dan Gilbert's business accelerator snags peeps from the coasts and brings their talents to Ohio.
Take that, LeBron.
--Now dig this quote from Toledo entrepreneur Gene Powell:
Too much emphasis is placed on working smarter. I think it’s overrated. Most times you just need to roll up your sleeves and work harder than anyone else around you.
As a fifth generation Northeast Ohioan, I've seen a lot of changes in this state. My ancestors came in the 1850's to farm the rich soil of the Cuyahoga Valley. My dad designed and built machinery in the heart of the Rust Belt while it was still thrumming with life.
Now I will be covering what's next, new and razor sharp at points across the state. What can I say about that? Oh wait--I know.
