It’s a busy time here at b5media. We’re growing, expanding, and gearing up for great stuff. We got word internally last week that Rachel Segal is joining us at b5 media–word is as a marketing honcho–which is very, very cool. I waited until Rachel had made this public before I blabbed–good thing I didn’t have to wait long:
b5media – a rapidly growing blog network that I’ve been familiar with for quite some time now. Just a thirty minute walk from my apartment and home to a fantastic crew I’m thrilled and honoured to start working with (notice the ‘u’ – I really am home…). Fortunately for me, I don’t have an international move looming like other startup junkies I know…but I do have some difficult emotions to sort through. Fortunately, I’m running toward something – and that something is an incredibly big opportunity I’m dying to dig into. Source: Debanter » Blog Archive » Back to LA, one last time…for now.
One of the things her dad, Rick Segal, talks about is hiring the best people in your startup to make it shine. You can’t do everything in your company, you can’t be an expert in everything. It might have been your idea, you might have used a couple close friends/early employees to get everything done, but to “take it to the next level” you have to find the experts who can help you.
I’ve been reading Rachel’s stuff for a while and I’m excited about working with her.
Boy, I hope she knows what she’s in for, we’re a pretty crazy bunch!
