EntConnect coming up... tomorrow!
Yikes! It is now time to do my final trip planning and preparation for the EntConnect 2008 Entrepreneurial Connections Conference, Thursday March 27, 2008 through Sunday, March 30, 2008, since I will be flying out to Colorado from Seattle tomorrow morning. I won't be joining the ski crowd of EntConnect tomorrow, but will be heading up to Boulder from the airport for the afternoon and will then catch up with the skiers later Thursday evening.
Ugh... I have to get up at 4:00 a.m. to catch the 5:00 a.m. bus to catch my 7:20 a.m. flight.
And then I read that there might be snow/rain here in the Seattle area.
AND THEN I read that American Airlines has grounded a large number of planes for safety inspections. It turns out that my AA flight is actually operated by Alaska Airlines and supposedly not an MD-80.
The most annoying thing this time of year is that you cannot predict whether the weather in Colorado will be cold and snowing so that you need plenty of winter "gear" or mild and warm and then you feel silly carrying all of this stuff around.
I look forward to meeting up with a passionate group of entrepreneurs and business owners this weekend for some serious networking about starting and running your own business. I do hope that a couple of venture capitalists will show up. And maybe even some lawyers and accountants.
Even if all you have is an outline for a business plan or even only some ideas scratched out on a cocktail napkin, EntConnect may be your best bet to accelerate your path forward.
