Concerns for my future and the future of this nation kept me agitated throughout the evening. However, I came up with an idea for an article. Unfortunately, my notes are in storage in another city, so I have to put that on the back burner.
In the meantime, here's a question for you: what is the difference between an upstart and a start-up?
Answer (from Webster's New World Dictionary): an upstart is a noun referring to "one who has recently come into wealth, power, etc., especially one who is presumptuous, aggressive, etc." A start-up is an adjective (increasingly becoming a noun) meaning "a new business venture."
