article about my company DigitalChalk.com in the Wall Street Journal! This will be one of those days that you always remember when you look back at all of the things that happen as you start a company. It is certainly a highlight for me. This picture is one that I took sitting there near the fire reading the paper and enjoying my coffee.
I was interviewed by Mark Whitehouse about 2 weeks ago while I was walking down the street in San Francisco, a long ways from our headquarters in Asheville, North Carolina but right in the heart of tech startup country. He told me he was trying to do some research on why it was hard for startups right now to get adequate funding. I was excited to share with him about DigitalChalk and the success that we have been blessed with in some really hard economic times. Our growth this year has been better than it ever has and there is really no end in sight! As I described this to Mark, he told me over and over that we had all the markings of a great story as a Gazelle. I really like that analogy. Gazelles are extremely fast and nimble animals and if you had the opportunity to meet the team at DigitalChalk, I think it describes us completely. I get to work with some of the smartest people with the agility to change and go from 0 to 100 at anytime.
Reading through the article, and seeing some of the accomplishments in print in the Wall Street Journal is both exciting and humbling, but most of all, it makes me thankful for the passion and the dedication to all the people who make up the DigitalChalk team. This is something we can all look back on and be proud of.
