When We Were Young
By Douglas Hanna, CEO of A Small Orange, LLC
All entrepreneurs remember the first time they gave a presentation about their business. My first presentation wasn’t completely ordinary, though. I was 16 years old at the time, and my parents joined me on the trip because they didn’t want me going to a conference by myself. Throughout the speech, my mom kept giving me assuring looks, while my dad insisted on asking questions that were embarrassingly irrelevant to my presentation.
