59. "TGIPF" Thank Goodness It's Patent Friday

So today is a big day for SKINNYprices because we filed our non-provisional patent with international rights. This 55 page big old fat document is a ton of hard work over the past few months between myself and my law firm Foley & Lardner. I would like to specially thank Max Colice (Foley patent lawyer) who I worked mostly with. We are very proud of the patent, it's strength, and the outline or road map we have created for I.P. moving forward. I really enjoy working with Foley & Lardner and I feel so much more comfortable having some real I.P. behind SKINNYprices. Today is a really good day!

58. San Francisco Here We Come

Had a great trip with out to San Francisco with my Advisor/President Ian Karnell. We got to meet some successful investors and bounce our concept off of them (We are not asking for money yet). Got some great feedback and made some great connections. Even got to got out to dinner with a group of 12 entrepreneurs from the area. I really enjoyed the visit and love the vibe that San Francisco has when it comes to entrepreneurial spirit. We plan on making many more trips out there and I will put together a future blog post comparing East Coast vs. West Coast once I have a few more trips under my belt.

-Great weather
-Strong entrepreneurial community
-Family out there
-A lot more funding out there
-And now some good friends

West Coast may be calling and I may be seduced by the call....
