This week I had the pleasure of being invited to speak at Stanford University - in what they call Entrepreneurial Thought Leaders lecture series. I have a confession to make - I tried to get into Stanford back in 1990, my application got rejected and I convinced my Dad to start Quicksoft - which became TopTier and a few other companies). So, when they ask me to come and tell my story to students I always say yes, as a way to share with the younger smarter students what lies ahead - after they leave stanford.
Over the years I found out that most of the metaphors I use come from the world of science and so I have a new set of lectures that I call "Nature of Business" - where I share some of my past experience and provide a way to look at those situations through the laws of science. I beleive a lot of technical people can relate better to the science than the art of business, so I hope that they can take the imagery and build a framework in their mind that will help them make the right decisions more intuitively.
I was already asked to convert the presentation into a book, so I might start posting some entries here in the blog and see what you guys think. If you like the PodCast and want to hear more - shout!
