Blunt truth about startup jobs.

What I’m about to say is true now, as of July 2012. It wasn’t necessarily true 15 years ago, and it may not be true next year. Right now, for most people, it’s utterly correct– enough that I feel compelled to say it. The current VC-funded startup scene, which I’ve affectionately started calling “VC-istan”, is– not to be soft with it– a total waste of time for most of the people involved.

Startups. For all the glamour and “sexiness” associated with the concept, the truth is that startups are no more and no less than what they sound like: new, growing businesses. There are a variety of good and bad reasons to join or start businesses, but for most of human history, it wasn’t viewed as a “sexy” process. Getting incorporated, setting up a payroll system, and hiring accountants are just not inspiring duties for most people. They’re mundane…

How To Control Your Anger – Anger Management

Anger is like fire. Constructive or Destructive.

Anger is like fire. Constructive or Destructive.

Anger can be a good thing or a bad thing. We all get angry sometimes. You can choose to channel your anger into something constructive or let it loose to be destructive. The choice is yours.

A few tips to calm your anger:

  • Realize that you have become angry – this is the most important step (self actualization)
  • Decide how to calm your anger – take a deep breath, drink some water, walk around a short while
  • Decide how you want to deal with your anger – use it to make something useful, turn it into motivation (use it to jog an extra mile or turn the event into a joke)

National Memorial Day Parade 2009 w/Miss US, DC, MD, Teen MD

Queen Dance Party on the National Mall

Shake, Shake, Shake-It

For most of my life, Memorial Day has meant commemorating our veterans, watching parts of the parade on TV, having outdoor cookouts, and spending time with friends. This Memorial Day was… a bit different from the norm.

I received a message to volunteer for the Memorial Day Parade [with Miss District of Columbia] and seeing as how I’ve never done it before [nor met Miss DC], I said: “Yes, I’d like to volunteer!” As Memorial Day approached, I used Twitter, Facebook, email, and etc. to ask for volunteers.

I guess the general public is still not in a volunteering mood, plus the fact that many of my known volunteers were on summer vacation.]
