    Whoa, scary how we’re often on same wavelength.

    I’m getting ready to finish my post on sharing vs. hoarding ideas. And in few months I’m launching a new project (I have to clear my plate first) and it’s going to be entirely shared. (Only being vague now because I haven’t written it up other than scribblings in journal and I’d like it if when you hear it for the first time it’s clearly presented.)

    The first reaction I get from folks I’ve told my idea to is exactly that: Don’t-dare-tell-anyone-else-or-they-may-steal-it. But this idea isn’t just an idea – it’s like part of my DNA, part of every fiber of my being. How do you steal that? And it’s not meant to be solely mine. So I’m absolutely 100% turning the tables on the conventional theory of holding cards close to your chest. Stay tuned…

    I don’t see why the concept wouldn’t work, Yo Sushi has been an amazing success and so to the Yo below. The Yotel website looks great, I can’t wait for one of these to pop up.
