Looking Back and Moving Forward: Historical Treasures and Startup Entrepreneurs

385How fast time flies when I have the pleasure of meeting new startup companies, and enjoying my hobby of acquiring, sharing and selling historical treasures.

This past year has given me the opportunity to meet some great entrepreneurs and their startup endeavors that are real American companies now. One that comes to mind is how much I enjoyed speaking to Bill Lott, about his http://hoursforequity.com startup created to help startups find talent and grow their company by offering equity.

Then I began the quest of selling vast amounts of acquired historical treasures. Troves of antique lace, historical books and now the beginning of mass amounts of silent film stills, autographs and amazing ephemera. ALL of the silent film, (some are here: https://patddixon.com/silent-film/ ) books (some here:https://patddixon.com/book-list/ ) and other antiquities listed in the pages of this site will all be for sale. If you find something you want, let me know. I will post a link to ebay in the coming days as I start to upload it. There are 1000s of never before seen movie stills so it will take time.

I have watched startups fail when they could have listened and learned, and I have seen startups succeed because they listen and learn. The right people mean everything. So do the right words, moves and instincts.

It’s about rarities to me, startups that creative ingenuity has spawned, historical treasures that are one of a kind and should not be lost to time; these go hand in hand.

This coming year is bringing more exciting startup stories that I am looking forward to sharing with you all. I have a pipeline of startups waiting to chat and share their story with the world, so stay tuned.  Join me for another fantastic year of looking back deep into history, and looking forward further than we imagine to new things!

Thanks for coming along on the journey, onward to our 2013!

The Startups and Entrepreneurs are Launching into Fall…and I’m back to it!

It’s that extra special time of year, when lots of cool products come out of the innovation gates. Startup companies launch all year long, but there is something special about Fall, when we start to settle in, work more often and watch innovation come to life around us, while nature begins to rest.

I am back to where this site began, writing and sharing about companies, startup businesses and entrepreneurs making a difference. I am, on occasion, working in conjunction with an awesome new ‘startup for startups’ based in Boston. http://StartupLeak.com

We will feature some great startup stories, product launches, true founder stories, and innovator connections for everyone to explore and enjoy in the months to come.

Here you go startup fans! Fall into the secret sauce!

Do you trust? Google+, Twitter, Facebook…What do you love about social and search and seo? Do they listen to the world, don’t we love it all for the value it brings? Share your thoughts

Everyone has something to say about changes in Google, and Google+, Twitter and Facebook. The real value is what it brings to you and yours, now isn’t it? Relate what moves you socially and in setting changes in all of your social. When will they understand that what we seek and share is actually cross-platformed regarding where and how we share and how we intake? Yes, we take it and we give it in different forms, and we like it. But their internal fight for financials, they miss it and actually lose their value in our thought platform.

Do you control it, or do they, or do they drive your motivation perhaps, and that’s how it matters? Tell the world what you think of your social accounts, Google, Facebook, Twitter and all the Other Valuable Networks that you love or utilize. Say it here, it will be shared with those that move them!
