Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving_1Thanksgiving is a great holiday.  I’ve heard many people say that it is their favorite holiday.  For most people it means food and family and those are two things we can all be thankful for.

I have a lot to be thankful for this year.  First and foremost, I’ve got a wonderful family.  Joanne, Jessica, Emily, and Josh are all amazing people.

My parents, brothers, and their families are all healthy and happy and they mean a lot to me too.  And Joanne’s family is also very special.  I am thankful to have such a great extended family.

This year we’ve got a bunch of friends celebrating Thanksgiving with us.  We are lucky to have such great friends and I am thankful for all of our them too.

I am also very thankful for the ability to do the work I do.  Venture Capital is the best business I could ever imagine being in.  I’ve been fortunate to be in this business for 18 years now.  And I am thankful that the environment for venture capital has improved markedly this year.

I’ve also had the pleasure of having great partners in this business.  I am thankful for my new partner Brad, and my former partners Jerry and Bob.  I don’t think you can be succesful in the venture capital business without great partners.

Finally, I am thankful for the ability to write this blog.  It is a source of great joy for me.  Sometimes I hear nice things from people who like to read this blog.  If it is a source of enjoyment for you too, then that makes me even more thankful.

So Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
