Friday was a good day. My friends over at Fetchnotes always seem to brighten my day. The team is smart, energetic, coachable and has great hustle. I expect big things from them and this will be confirmed by news in a couple weeks. After lunch I was walking down the sidewalk, on my way to the bank to wire Fetchnotes money (full disclosure, I am on their board and an investor) and I was talking on my phone. I’m completely in my own world. I heard “Wes.” Not sure if someone actually called out my name, I turned around and there was this young man. He looked familiar but I couldn’t place him (plus my mind was on my phone call of which the person is still on the line.) He introduced himself and thanked me for a mentoring session a while back. He said he took my feedback, worked on his idea and he got a funded company interested and is working for them, developing his technology. I asked him to email me so we could catch up later.
There is nothing more flattering than being stopped on the street and thanked for mentoring.
