Always do the Unexpected in Startups. Sometimes it's Even More Hygenic.

Aug 14


That firm handshake you just shared? Expected conduct but unexpectedly germy. The New York Times had a recent piece about the merits of a wimpy handshake as it transfers just 50% of the bacteria the standard business issue ones do. Amusingly, they go on to mention that a high-five and a fist bump reduce the bacteria transfer even further.

What does this all have to do with startups? If you're not doing the unexpected, you are taking a long road that is often punctuated with burnout. Get memorable and have fun. Bump THAT.

A case in point: A good sixteen months ago I was walking into a second meeting with a biz dev guy who was tall. Paul Bunyan tall. I moved to shake hands and he beat me to it, swinging his arm skyward to deliver the first high-five I've ever received in a business setting. I'm 5'11" in heels but it would require jumping to make contact. So I did.

I rarely remember what I have for breakfast most days but this I couldn't forget. Be that guy/gal. Take it up top. Isn't that what starting up is all about?


Assassins, Ninjas and On-the-Job Training

May 09


I've been getting some heat around the office about how you (yes, you!!!!) can become a ninja. Like I'm giving that up. At least not in this post.

I can give a tip: I always suggest starting with the easy stuff first, like hiding in broad daylight and blending in. And I'm not the only one.

I haven't played a video game in and eon or two. That said, a very kind colleague sent me a link to a Real Life Assassin's Creed video. Get loaded and check it out.

Ninja Calling Card

Mar 09


I'm slow. It's a bad trait for ninjas. I will be posting soon but I thought I'd tell you where to stalk me before then. Ninjas, however well armed, can get lonely.

I work at Accurate Always, Inc, in the Silicon Valley. Accurate Always manufactures the Voxida call recording and monitoring solutions that are used internationally by contact centers of all shapes and sizes.
