Scratch Your Own Itch, They Said

Scratch Their Own Itch, They Said. It’s an adage quoted often by people who talk about business ideas.

What was the itch?

  • Was it that I’d nowhere to go apart from my home office?
    Was it that coffee shops, while amazing, were not suitable for any every meeting? Nor *any* tender writing marathon?
  • Was it that I missed the company of business friends, and often wondered how to recapture the buzz of BizCamps and other meetups and tweetups inbetween times?
  • Was it that I heard others telling me the same frustrating tale?

I’m not sure… maybe all of the above…
