I have a lot to be thankful for this year. First and foremost, I've got a wonderful family. Joanne, Jessica, Emily, and Josh are all amazing people.
My parents, brothers, and their families are all healthy and happy and they mean a lot to me too. And Joanne's family is also very special. I am thankful to have such a great extended family.
This year we've got a bunch of friends celebrating Thanksgiving with us. We are lucky to have such great friends and I am thankful for all of our them too.
I am also very thankful for the ability to do the work I do. Venture Capital is the best business I could ever imagine being in. I've been fortunate to be in this business for 18 years now. And I am thankful that the environment for venture capital has improved markedly this year.
I've also had the pleasure of having great partners in this business. I am thankful for my new partner Brad, and my former partners Jerry and Bob. I don't think you can be succesful in the venture capital business without great partners.
Finally, I am thankful for the ability to write this blog. It is a source of great joy for me. Sometimes I hear nice things from people who like to read this blog. If it is a source of enjoyment for you too, then that makes me even more thankful.
So Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
