On Friday, I had a long planned breakfast with Bill McAleer. I've known Bill for a number of years in Seattle. We talked about TechStars, RevenueLoan, fund raising for a venture firm (i.e. Voyager and Founder's Co-op) amongst other things. There wasn't a particular agenda, point or lesson to the breakfast -- really just a desire to stay in touch and break bread in person. This informal get together over food is something that I've found a very important element to my job and to accomplishing my professional objectives.
I had my standard goto breakfast -- egg whites with bacon and he had their gluten free pancakes. Gotta love Portage Bay Cafe....and breakfast with Bill McAleer. :-)
