I have pitched to Tom several times over the past few months. We have discussed my business plan in a lot of depth so I have begun to get a good insight into how Tom operates.
Tom is a good guy, with lots and lots of ideas, what some might call "an outside the box" thinker. Like all such thinkers, he has a difficult time sifting through his ideas and figuring out which ones are good and which ones are not so good. But he means well and works hard. He name drops a LOT and I think that if you are going to work with Tom, you have to see past that. Tom knows a lot of people but he sure can't stop telling you about how smart and exceptional his contacts all are.
Tom is big on process. He has a "best practices" view on everything you do. This can help the inexperienced CEO who has a great idea, but can drive the more experienced one crazy.PRIVATE: Members Only (580 Characters)
