Yesterday was a day in the trenches

Some days as an entrepreneur you have those moments where you look back over the day and just say, "wow, I did all that and it doesn't even seem like I accomplished 1/2 of what I wanted." The tough part is that 2 years ago, I would have been elated to accomplish 1/4 of what was on the "list" for the day, but my expectations have grown, perhaps in a way that my capacity for accomplishment has a difficult time keeping pace.

Let review the tape:

0700: Breakfast with the boys and mom

0730: Review work done by a community member over the night.

0800: Get Facebook messages from community members that tell us about media covering LM

0830: Get to work first and do my chare of cleaning the office for the week (we call it field day).

0900: Try to get a haircut but forgot my wallet (a common problem for a crazy entrepreneur).

0910: Call investors to update

0915: Short team standup (networked from Japan, to Chicago, to Wareham)

0930: Sign checks to pay the bills

0945: Meet National news that has come to film me, the business, the product, the experience, and the team.

0945 - 1300: Interview and tour

1301: Holy Cow almost late....Change clothes FAST!

1302: Drive to Boston (really fast) for meeting with 9 person team from the State House discussing incentive packages for LM. On the way talk to 9 people on the phone. Schedule two investors to meet next week and two future customers to have a tour.

1530: Drive back down to LM in rush hour traffic.

1700: debrief progress on doors, seals and windows of the Rally Fighter. This is an awesome vehicle and to think that the community designed it, and we are bringing it to fruition with great engineering and fine build quality is humbling.

1900: Home to tuck the boys in. Read quick story of Go Dog Go.

1930: Off to dinner with the family of one of our team members. They are here visiting from France for the first time ever, so I must dust off my weak French vocabulary and conduct myself with care. How do you say "stem cell research" in French, I cannot even think how to describe because my mind is being stretched like Gumby today.

2130: Come home to download the days events to my wife, then twitter, then listen to a weekly podcast interview with which I was featured to discuss leadership, and then to Blog.

Lastly, today we unveiled on the site one of the latest images of the Rally Fighter - this time in its race configuration. Better known, of course, as the Rally Fighter Race Edition.


















And as a bonus, the tapas that keeps my auto life interesting, additionally today I watched a video of a Tango racing a Tesla... Awesome. Both over $105K but fun to watch. Can you hear the laughing in the background at the drag strip?

This is certainly something luxury watch buyers are looking to avoid, and replica watches something Bamford should seek to avoid as well. At the least, it isn't something you'd ever see from a production rolex replica watch. While the custom dials produced by Bamford are very cool, they can't directly compete with the hublot replica uk often pristine dial quality of factory Rolex watches. Moreover, it is unclear exactly how the green coating for these hublot replica sale watches will wear over time, which is a further source of unpredictability. If replica watches uk there is anything that Rolex has tried for years to embody in their marketing, it is that owning a cartier replica is extremely predicable - in a good way.
