Sam Davidson's blog

Every Tuesday, I write.

I share an idea I’ve come up with, a struggle I’m wrestling with, a puzzle I’m turning over in my head, or a story that I think the world needs to hear. You can sign up to get these emailed to you each Tuesday morning by clicking here

On Thursdays, I write at Batch about a business idea or concept, usually through the lens of my day-to-day work as co-founder and CEO or from the viewpoint and lessons learned of our purveyors. Follow along here

On LinkedIn and Twitter I often toss out quick thoughts and ideas that aren’t ready for longer posts just yet or something that I’m seeking feedback on. 

If you'd like to get more ideas like these sent to you each day, it's easy: sign up here.


 

It Takes a While, but We're Getting There

Yesterday, I spoke to four college classes. Two were at Belmont and were full of entrepreneurship majors. The other two were at Vanderbilt and were classes on business strategy.

One thing I told each class:

We started this thing on accident. We didn't write a business plan until we were 18 months old. That means, we've been operating for longer without a business plan than with one.

A lot of times, we do things in the wrong order. But, stuff usually works out in the end. Case in point: today, we put the final touches on our first media kit.

We've been lucky in getting the media coverage we have. We think that's just a testament to our story and what we offer. So, it's exciting to get covered in OdeMagazine.com, in print in the Boston Globe, or in every print news outlet in Nashville.

But, we want more. We'd love more press and more buzz (who wouldn't?). So, that's why (with the gracious help of one of our very talented interns), we've finally got our version of a media kit. It's not much. It simply details our story. Because for us, that's the best part of what we do - how we got here, what we're up to, and where we'd like to be.

So, click the link below if you want to take a look at it. You'll find some neat pictures, a 99-word description of what we do, how our business operates, more about our history, and even a sneak peek at what the new site design looks like.
