    Hi Andrew,

    First of all, I find it amazing that you have answered nearly every question on here. Bravo.

    My question for you is the number one cliche of all. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

    Why do I ask? Not too long ago you wrote a blog post about the possibility of being in another ‘tech bubble’. Also not too long ago, you appointed Adam Wood as the new CEO of MetaLab and announced that Flow and MetaLab were to be treated as two separate entities. By listening to and reading some of your interviews, I can’t help notice that you keep indicating the importance of having time to do the things that make you most happy in life. With agency acquisitions such as Adaptive Path, it truly feels like a sellers market at the moment.

    So, I ask, where do you see yourself in 5 years? Is it continuing to build products of your own such as Flow? Working on the agency? Sailing around the world? What would make you most happy :)

    From a fellow islander — Lee.

      I have no clue, man. If you'd asked me to predict where I'd be and what the companies would look like five years ago, I would have been way off. I want to wake up every morning and work with people I like on things I enjoy. Full stop.
