We’ve had an amazing first week following publication of The Startup Way. I’ve loved traveling to talk about the book and hearing what readers and supporters have to say and what their most pressing questions are. Launch week was busy to say the least, with lots of interviews, Quora and Reddit AMAs, and events across three states. A heartfelt thank you to everyone for turning out, reading, and offering support!
A few thing as we move into Week 2 of my book tour:
I’m now in Los Angeles and San Francisco to promote The Startup Way. If this week is anything like the last, attendees are in for great events.
