The Tactical Business Plan

Big Red Car here. Ahh, the ATX, it’s lovely to live in paradise. The Boss is back, so finally it’s back to writing regularly. Hey, Boss, nice to have you back.

So The Boss is involved with Techstars Austin as a Mentor and meets all the teams on Mentor Day or some such thing. Very impressive folks and startups. Continue reading

Planning Your Path To The Pay Window, Are You?

Big Red Car here.  The Boss is still in the Boat skiing.  Nothing like Spring skiing — 40F at the base and colder up top but warm and pleasant for the schussing.  And, we all love a bit of schussing.

Big Red Car here.  Bit cloudy early this morning in the ATX but it’s going to burn off and be a lovely, warm day.  On Earth as it is in Texas!

Horns won last night v Iowa State and had a tough time of it.  Whew.  Mack Brown might want to start updating his resume.  The Big Red Car supports Mack Brown and wants to remind everyone that the guy saved the Longhorns’ bacon and returned them to prominence.  But then again, what have you done for me recently, right?

Today, The Boss is going to take me to the body shop and get a price to get me repainted.  Ahhh, I think The Boss is up to something.  Hmmm.

I wonder what he’s planning.
