"paradigm shift" I think you've played too much FF 13!
Seriously though, Due to special circumstances this isn't all that helpful to me personally, but I can certainly see people getting a lot out of this blog series and really appreciate you taking time to do this even with your already really busy schedule.
You were lucky/blessed enough to have had an idea and went for it and have it be exactly what people desired at time, especially with WoL going into beta soon. This bit of fortune along with your expertise on the product(proven by your WCG win) you were able to give birth to your business at a time when Esports was being born into the wider world, as proven by so many non-game related sites producing articles on gaming(in a positive light).
Given you were essentially already "in the industry" at it's "birth" you will no doubt have a great level of insight. Furthermore, unlike most others in the industry, you own your own business instead of working for others, which gives you an even more in-depth view of the ins-and-outs of the industry.
I look forward to the rest of this series and hope it helps a ton of people break into the industry. After all, we all hope to work for the betterment of the Global E-sport Community.
P.S. I'm so glad we don't have to go through all the crap Timmy did to get your advice, God bless his soul. lol
