The Fog is Very Real

by Drew Meyers on 9:30 am May 9, 2017

Founders, entrepreneurs — as well as agents/brokers — should all read Fred Wilson’s post about seeing through the fog.

If you don’t know where you’re going, you’re more likely than not to pay attention to every object that comes into view.

Fred posted the following video on AVC Sunday, and 1 day later, there are over 350 comments on the post — and the video got me thinking a bit. The video was a presentation Forrester CEO George Colony gave at Le Web (a tech conference) in Paris — where he gave … Read More »
