Thanksgiving week has historically been calm for me. This week, though, hasn’t been as calm as I expected, and the rest of the week will likely be more of the same. I wasn’t sure if it was just me, so I asked a friend who does deal-related work. He’s experiencing something similar: lots of deals and other things he’s trying to get over the finish line. I also know a few founders trying to close rounds, friends trying to close real estate transactions, company leaders navigating layoffs, etc. All anecdotal, sure, but there appears to be more activity on a variety of fronts.
I’ll make sure I spend quality time with friends and family this week, but otherwise, no lounging around for me. The rest of the time, I’ll be working on finishing various projects.
