Marko on the Sale of Youth Specialties

“I still think this whole thing is, potentially, a win for everyone.”

markatdesk-225x300.jpgwrites Marko from his new downsized desk in the family room, on the acquisition of Youth Specialties by Youth Works. Bloggers are chiming in around the blogosphere, esp after the new announcement at the National Youth Workers Convention this week. For the skinny on Youth Works and President Paul Bertelson, go to Tony Jones who was one of the founders.

I enjoyed meeting Yac when he ran Youth Specialites, and I enjoyed my times with Marko over the years, which almost always included smoking a cigar [Marko seems to have a bottomless stash of them]. And I do hope, Marko, whatever organization you end up in, that we will have more stogie-fellowship in the future.


Andrew Jones has been blogging since 1997. He is based in San Francisco with his two daughters but also travels the globe to find compelling stories of early stage entrepreneurs changing their world. Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)
