I believe in random encounters. I believe in free exchanges. But, because of professional context, a lot of people ask me to “grab a coffee”. I just cannot do it with everyone who asks.
If you are seeking my opinion or advice… I like to and often share my thoughts and experiences with others. Make sure you know the questions you want me to answer and read what I have already written on the subject. When you contact me, provide enough context for me to judge whether or not I can help.
If you are an entrepreneur and want to meet me, but doesn’t have any specific request, then meet me at one of the events involving the entrepreneurship community in the SF Bay Area.
If you just want access to my network of relationships because someone told you I am well-connected… I am not. And relationships are inherited through relationships, you cannot access mine without being part of the network. Build your own relationships, one person at a time.
