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.


 

Votes and Beans

I voted today.

I love voting. I give a big fist pump in the air after I press the "Submit Ballot" vote on the machine. It's like I won. Chalk one up for democracy, I guess.

I made sure to get a sticker when I left. After all, nothing makes voting worth it like a free sticker that I'll wear for a few hours, only to be seen by myself as I head back to the office for a few hours of writing.

Except that I decided to swing by Crema after I left, which is the closest coffee shop to where I voted. Crema, by the way, makes the best tasting cup of coffee in Nashville. The best.

And, as I stopped by to support Rachel Lehman's venture while getting a nice caffeine kick for the afternoon, she let me know that since I was sporting my "I Voted" sticker, I got a free cup of coffee.

Much like Ben and Jerry will be offering with ice cream in a few weeks, Rachel's hooking up democracy lovers in Nashville with a free drink.

Democracy is delicious.
