Tech Cocktail Conference: 9 Tips to Profitability

Tech Cocktail ConferenceWhen Frank told me that the goal of the Tech Cocktail Conference was to:

"... assist attendees by bringing them essential business startup tips, advice and knowledge from a super-cast of successful founders, developers and entrepreneurs..."

I thought that a closer look at Squidoo could be of value to those attendees.  He agreed, so I'll be joining Squidoo's COO Corey Brown at the conference to give a talk, 9 Tips to Profitability: How Squidoo Did It

It took about two years for Squidoo to go from an idea in Seth's very recognizable head to a profitable Internet company.  They did it without raising venture capital and by adhering to some of the principles that I expect will be a theme with others at the conference: stay small, be nimble, spend less, make money. 

We'll spice it up a bit, too, though, and we'll be touching on some of the actual lessons Squidoo learned along the way.  We hope to answer some good questions during Q&A as well.
