Yikes, I broke LinkedIn! Tom Potter noticed!. By entering William Paterson after RiverSound, I broadcast that my new career is as an adjunct professor. Not exactly true. I founded RiverSound Solutions two years ago, and turned a profit in 2014. Can a middle-aged women run a tech-start up? OF COURSE. Check us out over the coming weeks as we 'go live'.
