The idea of starting a business seems wonderful. The entrepreneurial freedom, the potential wealth, and the excitement of creating something new and novel. But the reality is very diffferent. The long nights, the failures, the effects on your loved ones, the naysayers, and the lack of money all take a toll. 

Come and hear a very honest (and funny?) account of what it's been like taking an idea and turning it into a real business.  I'll share the ups and downs, the lessons learned along the way, and perhaps help others see the realities. 

I will also share the joys of being an entreprenuer and why after five difficult years, I keep going. This is absolutely NOT legal advice, simply the shared experiences of an entrepreneur. 

About a 30 minute presentation and then an open Q&A session after the presentation.
