In the last few weeks, I've worked hard on a slide deck and a 10-minute talk explaining my business. The last few days mainly consisted of "killing my darlings". That is: removing slides and text to make my pitch as concise as possible. Now I'm making a second slide deck with the content that didn't make it into the pitch. I'm going to use that slide deck to anticipate "unexpected" questions.
For instance: Why did you come to Silicon Valley? There's a well-founded answer to that question, and there's a simple answer.
The simple answer is: In 2011, Silicon Valley has been visiting my site. Now I want to visit the Silicon Valley site for a change.
