We compared notes, tales of woe, and passed around a lot of encouragement. Of course, it's not always a big case study session and we did have a little Vegas-style fun.
I am not at liberty to reveal most of the details of the week's non-conference activities, but maybe Harvard Business School psychology professor Abraham Zaleznik is right:
"To understand the entrepreneur, you first have to understand the psychology of the juvenile delinquent...the hallmark of the entrepreneur is a drive for autonomy, for a freedom from restraints that bespeaks an inner rebelliousness and a fearlessness in the face of risk."
Well put, Professor Zaleznik. And for everyone who wasn't there, I encourage you to join us next year.
