    I am a third time entrepreneur, starting off this time a little less green, a little less eager to believe but... more inspired to achieve. I have spent decades in government service and five years ago, I co-founded a company that went from strength to strength.. It set up in Canada, opened up in San Fransisco and now I see we have an office in China... I never made a penny from that venture, but i learned a lot. I learned about greed, being gullible, vengeance and culpability.

    My next venture was a 3D printing company. it was / is an unbelievable product but... there was a serious, some would call it, grievous, break in out team.. we were able to snatch defeat from a certain victory when a 3D God came to our simple Garage based HQ and declared it was the best thing he had seen in 30 years of 3D technology... My money went down the pan... but i had learned even more..

    I am now about to branch out into China, I won't say I am fearless,as that would be foolish, but I have sat down with the money and won, I have met with the best in their field and had them commit to an enterprise, I have moved further than my destiny had given reason to believe I could ever achieve and yet there is further yet to go and still I'm gathering steam and increasing momentum because from the "Failures" I have endured very clearly showed there is so much to accomplish.

    it's not about the money now, its about the climb.. Everything I learn about myself, the world and the journey is imprinted for the next challenge and arms me ready to defeat the next obstacle.

    I wish, truly wish I had been able to count on the knowledge of others 5 years ago... It would have been invaluable.

    I'm about to take a deep breath and go under again, this time, my eyes wide open. Thank you for letting me share a few thoughts.

    Thank you TJ, I think that's a great idea. I will start a thread in the New Year. I'm lucky to have a great spring board to launch into the Chinese Web market. For the next few weeks I'm building a product base and will be there over the New year getting the final touches in place. We all want a great resposne to our ideas and so far it's been fantastic. We all want to crack China, so far... its a great start.. lets see.. research and support suggests its going to be a very good year. I cant wait to post more in the NEw year and hopefully reach those who have gone before me..
