Staying the course
I remember about 10 plus years ago, standing outside Starbucks in Castro Valley, I met this lady asking me to fill out a survey for her marketing research project, I said: “Okay, cool”. I filled out the survey, I quizzed the lady a bit, bad jokes as usual, and we strike up a conversation, we built a professional friendship on that one encounter.
This lady is named Mary Jean Koontz, we laughed about it days ago considering she’s presenting in Oakland this Tuesday at Capital Connections Forum I: A Special Evening with Unique Investors on EduTech.
Mary Jean is one of the presenters at this week’s event in Oakland at Tech Liminal. We both laughed because we have known each other and supported each other’s projects over the years just off of one chance encounter at Starbucks.
The world is not so much smaller. I think a new way to look at that often used phrase is that you meet people along the path of your journey; some give up, while others stay the course and keep that magical energy. Looking back, she was on a journey then, she’s still headed towards her goal.
When I met Anca Mosoiu years ago, she had energy, that spark of excitement and she was totally committed to her dreams.
Sitting down having coffee with her days ago, she still had that spark, excitement and commitment. Both people were committed to their dreams and years later, whether it Mary Jean 10 years later. Or Anca that runs Tech Liminal, both are still on the path and growing!
I hope to see everyone this Tuesday night at Tech Liminal as we watch an incredible group of entrepreneurs and support a great event happening in Oakland about Capital Connections Forum I: A Special Evening with Unique Investors on EduTech
I am excited!
