Upon receiving numerous suggestions from friends and colleagues I have decided to create a blog to document the latest chapter in my life, a four month trip to Hyderabad India.
This past year, with the help of some talented folks in Detroit and San Francisco, I have started a company that has pushed me away from corporate life for the time being, into an the role of an entrepreneur dabbling in online community space.
This is by far the greatest risk I have ever taken in my life so far, and hope that it proves to be a learning experience that will expose me to international business and new cultures in a land far from home. I have lived in New Zealand and England, but this will be my first time living in a non English speaking country. With family and new friends near by, the transition to Hyderabad life should be interesting and not too painful. My only concern at the moment is the political stability of the country.
Recently there was a terrorist attack in a public park and restaurant, killing nearly 40 innocent people. I hope to avoid any religious/political conflicts out there, and engage myself in the rapidly developing business world that Hyderabad is famous for. While being tied up to successfully launching our final product for 2008, I will dive deep into the local music scene and explore opportunities within bollywood. I promise to keep updating this blog with exciting developments, and welcome any advice/comments as I go along. I get a rush when I think about where I am right now with no set path ahead of me. The excitement of life is at an all time high, and thank you all for being a part of it with me as friends and family. My flight is literally boarding right now, so I am off for the 18 hour flight to Mumbai, India.
