This is hard work

I haven’t written anything in almost two weeks despite the fact that I try to every other  day or so.  Sometimes I blank on topics and even though there’s plenty of things in the news to comment in – I try to keep this site light.

The past few weeks I’ve just been way too busy to write anything. Busy – hanging out in Sayulita Mexico with friends & watching my old business partner Nate Williams get married.  It was a blast.

Nate & I were roommates and best friends throughout and after college. We were actually in Mexico right after college graduation in 1998 with his parents when we decided that we had to start a business. Of course, we had no good ideas at the time but over a few beers anything seemed possible. A year later, we scraped together $30k from friends and family and went for it.

A few years into Axxess we were both barely hanging on financially. Bar-tending on State Street just wasn’t cutting it. We paid rent with our credit cards and were getting into some serious debt because the business certainly wasn’t providing us with any financial return. We parted ways as business partners in 2002 and surprised everyone by remaining best friends. He then traveled South America for a year and later finished top of his class becoming a firefighter in Orange County. Many of you knew Nate and might even recognize him from the Fox reality show The Academy in which Fox chronicled his particular class’s training – which is actually quite typical of Nate. Not only does he get into the academy, but he gets to be on TV.

Oh well, Axxess is on TV all the time.  (For $2 per second!)
