Update on Tom Hoobyar

Hello all,

I am very sad to report that on September 25 my father, Tom Hoobyar, lost his battle with pancreatic cancer.

There will be a memorial service at Menlo Park Presbyterian on October 29 at 11 am. All family, friends and colleagues are welcome to attend. The address is 950 Santa Cruz Ave, Menlo Park. Feel free to email me at with any questions.

Please take a moment and read this very touching tribute to my father, written by his good friend Perry Marshall. I promise you, it is entertaining and heartfelt. You can even listen to a recorded interview with my Dad. And come back soon. I will be keeping this site updated with my father’s teachings and learnings, and we will keep this site alive.

Until next time,
Tracy Hoobyar

A Fern Named Lazarus

I have an asparagus fern named Lazarus.

Why did I name him Lazarus? I’ll tell you why.

I named him Lazarus because – when I first got him for my batchelor  apartment – I was sometimes a neglectful caretaker.

I got the plant so there would be something alive in my apartment besides me. It came in a small green plastic pot about the size of a coffee mug and cost two dollars. It was a little green living thing and it kept me a kind of quiet company.   Read more…

My Confession

Here it is. I’ve been around a lot and have learned quite a bit.


Even as “smart” as I am, occasionally it takes the Universe a LOT of work to get me to see an  important lesson.

In other words, sometimes I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed.

Once in a while I get so focused picking up a coin from the ground that I brush diamonds out of my way without even… Read more…
