Do you ever wonder what today’s tech-savvy entrepreneur carries around in his briefcase?
Well, how about a widescreen laptop with a wireless connection, iPod, all manner of cables and cords, a futuristic-looking microphone, 10 USB memory cards (“because you never know what will happen”) and a lot more.
That is the inventory of the contents in Ramon Ray’s briefcase when we met this evening for the first time in person. Ramon edits the influential Smallbiztechnology.com site. Although Ramon and I have corresponded regularly and Ramon has been on my radio program, we had never met in person before tonight.
I am in New York attending the American Express OPEN event, “Making a Name for Yourself.” Before the event, Ramon and I had the chance to meet and spend a few minutes over a Coke. The next thing I knew, Ramon was conducting an impromptu audio interview and recording us.
That’s today’s entrepreneur. You could call his briefcase an “office in a box.”
