We are a long way from Sydney, Australia Toto, but its all worth it. Kim and I have spent the better part of two years preparing for this. The product, the licensing deal, the business plan, the Australian investors, Kim becoming an Australian for our US visas, getting our US visas, packing up the house, finding a house, car and nanny all on www.craigslist.com (gawd I love that Craig bloke) and finally getting here to bootiful Portland, Oregon. Home of a fierce rivalry...the almighty Beavers and the angry Ducks. I had to become a Duck because their colours are the same as the almighty Wallabies - Australia's rugby union team.
The porpoise of this blog is to keep a record of our adventures here in the US - particularly the business of starting up a business in these post dotcom days where business models actually count and a hand puppet at Superbowl does not maketh a marketing strategy ( damn it, I loved that idea).
