Who are you and what do you do?
My name is Rishi, but you can call me Gerald for short. I was sent to planet Earth to start FlyingCart.com. It revolutionized life on my home planet because its A) awesome B) easy to use.

All kidding aside, I never had any friends, so I am obsessed with social networking on the internet. I am hoping to have 5,000 friends one day on facebook. Flying Cart incorporates networking to ecommerce.

Tell us a bit about your background.
I pretty much rock it 24/7 on the internet. Seriously, I spend so much time on the internet, sometimes I can’t remember what I do in real life, and what my avatar, Risk does. Its all a blur man.

Everything I learn comes from Jason Fried, my business partners Margo and Brian, JAW, and the Brainreactions community.

Tell us about Flying Cart and how you came about it.
All I want is more stores online that are awesome.  I hate it when cool super niche stores have a hard time competing with the super lame walmart/dropshippers of the eccommerce world. LET’S START THE REVOLUTION!

We want to allow small business owners to connect to each others store to sell online.  Think mini malls for the internet.

Tell us something interesting about yourself.
I’m a hardcore vegetarian. My roommate thinks its weird, but I think its weird that he locks himself in his room to watch Ryan Seacrest live.

What advice would you give entrepreneurs?
This is what my uncle told me when Flying Cart wasn’t doing so hot.  “You have to give any new business at least 1000 days.  Work hard and keep focused until then.”
Feel free to connect with Rishi in anyway.
