Regular readers of this blog may be wondering whether I have become lazy as there are not many posts on the blog. I have not been lazy – in fact, I have been busy preparing for the launch of a new venture that I am involved with called Suggestica.
A brief story of the genesis of Suggestica – A few months ago, I was speaking at a conference on the topic of chasing dreams. At the end of the meeting, a young man came to me and asked if I had three minutes to listen to a pitch. I was happy to give him the three minutes and I must say that I am glad I did. Vijay had the sparkle in his eyes – the same sparkle that any budding entrepreneur who is about to change the world would have. Granted, he had not built companies before but I could see the fire in his belly. The pitch wasn’t perfect but I could see that he was open to listening for feedback and showed willingness to change. Over the next few weeks, we built a relationship – a very strong relationship. I just discovered that Vijay was willing to do whatever it takes to make this happen. It has been a great partnership so far and long story short – Friday morning 8am PST is the launch of this exciting service.
Did I tell you that my first few novels were spy thrillers? I truly want to tell you what Suggestica is all about. But I have promised to the team that I won’t – until the launch on Friday. So, please bear with me and wish us the very best.
The beta will be open to public on Friday 8am PST and I do hope that you will visit the site and provide your comments
