1. I came up with the concept of my next book:

When Brant Cooper and I initially collaborated on The Entrepreneur’s Guide to Customer Development. Now, we are working on The Lean Entrepreneur (Wiley, Fall 2012).

The Lean Entrepreneur will describe Lean Startup tactics applicable in any domain that has innovation and uncertainty. We have case studies of people doing Lean Startup-like things in music, social entrepreneurship, investment, restaurants and all sorts of interesting domains.

I also run LeanLA.com and FounderDating LA. LeanLA is a meetup with more than 2k members where we have speakers talk about Lean Startup & Customer Development. FounderDating LA is a curated experience that allows talented founder s to find one another.

Going to restaurants; not looking at the menu and asking the wait staff to surprise me with their favorite choice.
