It was an additional surprise that the Investors’ Circle conference turned out to be in San Francisco, our favorite U.S. city and home to two of our “four boys”. This facilitated a long-overdue visit.
First stop, Austin, an “island in Texas”. Adam, a Freshman at Texas University is now well established in his new home town, which is an eclectic, laid back, liberal, music-centered kind of place.
Being with Adam, first and last stop: sushi!
Josh’s music event business, EC, is establishing a national footprint, i.e. expanding beyond their initial Boulder / Denver, Colorado presence. They have a strong following for after-concert events which incorporate electronic musicians and visual artists. If they can stay the course, financially, they are building a strong and loyal customer base at a national level, that should yield financial results to keep the EC brand going. Krista is starting her PhD in psychology in the fall. ( Lots more sushi, lots more good food with Josh….)
After the Investors’ Circle conference, we have two days to play before I (Ben) return to Nicaragua to launch industrial ramp up, while Peta stays in SF at an Ashram for some intense yoga and meditation.
