This is my one-hundred-eightieth weekly reflection. Here are my takeaways from this week:
- Limited partners’ appetite – I had a long conversation with a good friend in private equity this week. He’s seeing that existing and prospective limited partners have a strong appetite for cash-flow-positive businesses and fund managers with operating experience who can improve portfolio company results by rolling up their sleeves.
- Impatient – This week was a reminder that I’m still impatient about certain things. Some projects take time to show results, which is frustrating. I’ve worked on being more patient over the years, but I still have my moments.
- Ground-level data – I was also reminded that in some instances, data collected at the ground level can help me get a better understanding of what’s happening—and much sooner—than aggregated high-level data in publications or from trade associations.
Week one hundred eighty was another week of learning. Looking forward to next week!
