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.


Let's Meet

Some people don't do coffee meetings, citing that random encounters with people are a drain on time. There is surely some truth to this, but I'll always take meetings when asked (appropriately fitting into my personal and professional schedule, of course).

This article highlights just how beneficial these meetings can be, and showcases just how much one could learn or gain from a year's worth of weekly meetings. 

So don't complain that you can't do something (raise capital, solve a problem, find the right hire, land a new customer, start a new business) when you haven't yet asked anyone to coffee.

A lot of first steps never happen alone; they happen when two people get together and make an idea better.

So you are you drinking with this week?
