"Matt" Groening (gray-ning) is the creator of the comic strip Life in Hell (1977–2012) and the television series The Simpsons (1989–present) and Futurama (1999–2003, 2008–2013). Groening said his goal in creating "The Simpsons" show was to offer the audience an alternative to what he called "the mainstream trash" that they were watching. Groening famously named the main Simpson characters after members of his own family: his parents, Homer and Margaret (Marge or Marjorie in full), and his younger sisters, Lisa and Margaret (Maggie). Claiming that it was a bit too obvious to name a character after himself, he chose the name "Bart," an anagram of brat. The entire Simpson family was designed so that they would be recognizable in silhouette. After spending a few years researching science fiction, Groening got together with Simpsons writer/producer David X. Cohen in 1997 and developed Futurama, an animated series about life in the year 3000.

Entrepreneurship is like you waking up one day, deciding that you’ll start running and you keep running, forever (think Gump, not Gebrselassie). Some days you’ll enjoy running, some days you’ll not. Some days you’ll feel fit, some days you’ll not. You’ll will find fellow runners on a few days, on most days you’ll not. But, you just have to keep running. If things do not go as per plan for a while, remember the old Persian saying – This too shall pass. Just suck it up, tie your shoe laces harder  and keep putting one foot in front of the other.

* "Change before you have to" - Jack Welch
