Recently, we have had much commentary and banter regarding a few "early-stage" companies, its management teams, and its investors. It seems that some ego's have been bruised. My polite response to these people is that if you are unhappy about what is being discussed, please don't read the blog, or when you wake up take a good look at yourself in the mirror. We must question those that express their animus by asking "is there any truth to what is being said?" Sometimes the truth is a difficult pill to swallow. Unlike other platforms TSB does not delete any comments, whether they critique TSB or its readers, as long as it is done in good taste.
The one question that must be asked is, why is it when small companies fail, have no idea how to implement a strategic plan and do not understand how to execute, it is always the fault of a distributor, middle manager, or the dynamics of the industry? Does anyone ever take responsibility on an executive level? Could it be that so many people are incompetent, or, could it be that you make poor decisions and lack good people management skills?
In closing, I would like to use this opportunity to wish all my readers a wonderful Thanksgiving! Keep reading, your voice counts and can make a difference!
