Oh dear, sweet newquill. You were such an abstract, ephemeral concept for a company. But you still have strength! You still have a vision! You still have a purpose! You are still on all of our legal paperwork!!!
So, as one discovers in the world of entrepreneurship, there is a thing called a pivot. And a pivot means that even if it is ever so slightly you change the direction of your company.
At one point I thought it was a BAD thing. That pivoting was a sign of failure. Don’t be fooled. Pivoting is a sign of humility, a sign of listening. So we were humbled by the response to our first vision for the application and thought about what we all loved most. Ah, yes, of course. Music.
So we came up with the idea of Re-Vinyl – re-inventing the album for the digital age. A very specific application of newquill to the music industry. And, not surprisingly, it stuck. Big time.
So I’ll keep posting occasionally on the blog. Things are a little crazy right with the end of our time at Dreamit and all, but I’ll stay true and committed to my writing. Maybe one day we’ll grow big and strong and hire someone to write these blogs for us. Or, better yet, we’ll hire someone to do all of the other work that I’m doing right now and I’ll just write the blog. That would be great.
Here’s to change! Here’s to progress!
