Moving To Homer, Alaska

Feld Thoughts

During one of the long conversations we had at the time about our future, we started talking about calling it quits and moving to Homer, Alaska. We didn’t know anyone there and I didn’t have any business there, but it was a lot more centrally located in the US than Homer, Alaska.

Slow Down To Speed Up

July in Alaska helps (although this summer has a fun, European twist). It’s Sunday morning. Take a deep breath. It’s summer time. Go for a walk. Or a run. Play with your family. Take a nap this afternoon. Read a book. Go to a movie. Chill. Last week, I had two close friends tell me some version of “I’m too busy.&# One insightfully said “I have no time these days. I’m doing too much.&#

Every year or so my partners and I at Foundry Group create a new company, or start a new project, that we believe had the potential to change the way something works in our world, while simultaneously helping the entrepreneurs we work with, and the entrepreneurs we aspire to work with. For example, in 2006, we co-founded Techstars.

Amy has DonorsChoose in her twitter feed and we quickly figured out what was going on.
