Babble Soft Has Found A Home
Oct 12 2009
So back in late June, I announced that Babble Soft was looking for a new home, and I’m happy to report I found one and it’s really not that far from its current home.
I put some feelers out for interested parties and got some great leads and potential interest, but after a few weeks I realized I just didn’t have the time with a full time day job and kids to really do the sales effort well and even if a large company said they were interested it could be 6 to 9 months before they could actually do anything about it! And frankly, I didn’t have it in me with the other things I’m juggling to play the waiting game for an unknown outcome.
So my partner, Nicole Johnson, and I discussed possibilities. Nicole also runs Pick Nick’s Brain, a baby sleep consulting site. And like a true angel, she decided she could take it over and run with it! So a couple of weeks ago, we made it official! She will be running Babble Soft going forward. She’s an amazing individual who is also juggling many things, but she had maybe 2-3 less things on her plate to manage than I do right now, so the dream lives on!
I couldn’t think of a better person, who gets the vision (and who knows how to code!), to take our vision and grow it. And to think I’ve never even met her in person. I found her through a bunch of online connections and even wrote about finding a partner online for GigaOm. I couldn’t have wished for a better business partner. She adapted when the situation changed for me and for both of us. I’m hoping I meet her in person sometime soon.
I’m still a part owner so I’ll be continuing to support Nicole and talking up Babble Soft when and where I can, and I hope that many of you readers will too!
Now, I must take some extended time to decompress, sort a few things out, and figure out what my next entrepreneurial endeavor might be…possibly creating a music CD or writing a book!Author: Aruni | Filed under: babble soft | Tags: babble soft, nicole johnson, selling a company | 6 Comments »
