  • Dharmesh: Took out the “is…” because the next slide doesn’t answer the question.
  • Dharmesh: Changed to “but first this…”
  • Baby in clown suit
  • Dharmesh: Changed to “is about being” (instead of using the word “lies”).
  • Dharmesh: Changed to “this includes marketers” (
  • Dharmesh: Fixed typo to read: “wind in sails”
  • Dharmesh: I would take one more run at these 5 points and reduce the volume of text. People don’t like to read.
  • Dharmesh: I like this and the next slide. Lets keep them in.
  • Dharmesh: Lets shorten the list to maybe 5, and use all gender-neutral ones. I also like the “spread” of different kinds of adjectives. I’m thinking: parents, gardeners, ambitious, impatient
  • Dharmesh: Fixed typo (an email). Quick tactical note: For these slides, better to use a single text box and just change the font/size for the word you want to highlight (instead of having two separate boxes). Easier to edit text, and less likely to get messed up on different monitors.
  • Dharmesh: Changed Slideshare to a presentation (more generic, and not trademarked).
  • Dharmesh: Lets put a link in to a specific follow-up resource (not sure what it should be). We should also use a bit.ly link for it, so we can track clicks.
