Berg, interesting to hear your whole story. I have been doing my best to try to network with people and I'm hoping something will work itself out that way. Intereting to hear that you went to school for your MBA while working, that seems like an attractive option in a couple of years maybe. Also interesting to hear your opinions on the formal marketing organizations.
Thanks a lot for the advice, any extra insight I can get I'm all ears for. Good luck with your friend's startup, that is a kind of business I would love to start as well. It's definitely a big risk and probably slow to get off the ground, but I think it would be quite fulfilling working on and around boats all the time.
