The biggest source of inspiration for me in my entrepreneurial dreams is seeing people who I know personally succeed in building something from the ground up. Last week, Jared launched AwayFind, which aims to curb distraction from e-mail by offering senders a way of getting in touch with you rapidly, thereby lessening the mental need to check e-mail constantly. I think it’s a great idea, and, while I currently have no problem being constantly in touch under normal operating circumstances, I have it in my e-mail signature.
Jared is a real inspiration. He built something from nothing, and took it to a public launch. Congratulations Jared, and I’m so happy you let me play a very very small part in it.
