It’s Been a Long Time

By | General | No Comments

It’s been a long time since I blogged and there is good reason for it.  I’ve taken a full time position pursuing a new career as an entrepreneurial advisor.  I’ve taken the position of Program Director for the UpTech accelerator and as Commercialization Director for the Northern Kentucky office of the Kentucky Innovation Network.  What this means is I’m working every day with new business founders helping them realize their vision for a better tomorrow.

I don’t think this means the end for JB Woodruff Design, but things are definitely on hold.  I’ll keep you posted.

What I’m Thankful For: My Wife

By | General | No Comments

It’s Thanksgiving again. Time for Fall Feast, fun, family, food, football and naps.

It’s also a time for recognizing what and who you’re thankful for. I’d like to say this year I’m thankful for my wife’s support.

The past 12 months I’ve made the transition to full-time consulting to work on my own businesses and she has been nothing but supportive.

It started when I said that I wanted to spend 4 weeks in Kenya last fall. She said ‘when are you going to have the chance to do this again in your life?’ When I mentioned turning the original 4 week plan into 3 months, she continued to support. When that 3 months in Kenya turned into 3 months in Cape Town, she was along for the ride. It continued through the summer and to this day she’s just happy that I’m loving my new career direction.

I’m thankful she’s there to help me through the entrepreneurial roll coaster every day. It’s quite the ride.
