Hello,

Interesting article. " make sure that people are aligned" 100% agreed.

we building a free Entrepreneurs Investors community. Our idea is to bring to entrepreneurs advice that will help them in the growth process. The website is free of charge while still in beta. Let's develop markets together!

I leave you the decision to publish the address of the website (thestreetmarket.com).

Thanks and good work!

I think you made a very good point. I watched many angel investors and high end funds disintegrate at the end of the 90's early 00's due to the "bubble" bursting.

Too many times their expectations of everything being a grand slam, and a World Series winning Grand Slam (the ultimate), fed by the uncontrollable Internet boom, made them forget that you need a strategy, you need mutual buy-in (alignment), and you need end-goals.

Actually, the metaphor works really well if you consider that ballparks are of all different shapes and sizes. So a ball hit 400 feet in Fenway Park would be a home run but it would fall short in Houston. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ballpark#Variations.
