author Brent Beshore is an angel investor, he owned venture capital company AdVentures. AdVentures is a partner enterprise of Gen Y Capital. My daily life is turning around the entrepreneurial business. The first cup of coffee every morning I usually read in the news of the industry trends, and the rest of the time are often in consultation with the entrepreneurial enterprises, or meet with entrepreneurs in the past.
