I'm a business attorney that helps startups as the main part of my practice. I'm not licensed in Michigan (Maryland only), but I've worked for enough for startups over the years to give some general business advice.
Successful founders in the long-term are fanstastic risk-managers. Unsuccessful founders tend to take gambles without accounting for the risk of loss (i.e., Heads - business grows!. Tails - I lose a lot of money). Successful founders put a lot of thought into minimising risk (i.e. Heads - business grows! Tails - I lose a bit of my time, and negligible money.).
With that general principle, here's some specific advice:
Always happy to chat about startups in more detail.Let me know.

|03/20/2012 - 1:42am||Some Thoughts...||
This was the 2nd Michigan tennis match I've been to (the first being Duke this year), and it was great to get a sweep of MSU. Overall, the games were much closer than the 7-0 score suggests, with three singles matches going into three sets and the doubles point coming down to a tiebreak. It was a really good day overall, except for the Spartan fans, who would start "Go Green, Go White" chants in the middle of points during the doubles session. Most of them left by the start of the singles matches.
Michigan got out to a quick 4-0 lead with straight set wins from King, Buzzi, and Franks. The other three matches were much closer, yet all ended in Michigan victories an hour later - all three matches finishing within a minute of each other!
I spent my time watching doubles and #1-3 singles, so I thought I'd give my 2 cents:
#1 Singles - While Evan King played a great game (and hit some sick backhand passes), I was shocked how bad the #1 singles for MSU was playing. The kid was around 6'4", and hit maybe 3-5 service winners all game. He did not respond well to Evan King's backhand slice; the MSU kid would often roll it right to King's forehand, and King would rip it cross-court to win the point 90% of the time.
In fact, every time King would apply any pressure whatsoever, he would win the point due to an unforced error by the MSU singles player. Couple that with a handful of missed short forehands, and Evan King cruised to a 6-0 6-2 victory in under an hour. I hate to pick on any player, but that was the worst performance I've seen from a D-I 1st singles player.
#2 Singles - The MSU player was a consistent baseliner without any big weapons, and gave Bernstein a pretty hard time. Bernstein won most of the shorter exchanges and used his forehand to overpower his opponent early in the points. Berinstein's backhand was inconsistent throughout the game, and he was losing most of the longer rallies in the match (especially those with backhand exchanges).
For some reason, the MSU player did not abuse Bernstein's backhand nearly enough, and he let Berinstein play to his strengths with his forehand. This is a game that MSU matched up very well in and probably should have won if the MSU player gave any thought to his opponent's weaknesses. The match went to three sets and was decided by Bernstein's forehand overpowering the MSU player.
#3 Singles - GRITGRITGRIT. Petrone was clearly off for most of the match, slightly misfiring on his backhands throughout the day. I was impressed by the MSU player (nicknamed "Bogey"), who played a very smart counterpunching game. He was content to play defense and wait for unforced errors and was not afraid to be agressive if Petrone started playing passively and tight.
As mentioned above, Petrone was down 3-0 in the final set and was clearly frustrated with his inconsistency from the baseline. Eventually, something clicked, and he began playing a smart agressive game to take the final set 6-3. In the two times I've seen Petrone play, I've been very impressed by his game. He can definetely get down on himself at times, but he showed great mental toughness against a solid opponent.

From my understanding, our coaching staff's policy doesn't disallow Michigan verbal commits from visiting other schools. They just ask that recruits notify Hoke and Co. before they make an official visit. The issue with Pharoah Brown was him taking a visit to Oregon without notifying anyone.
