I started my first “real” company while in college, where it grew to the point that I had to decide between finishing college or growing the hell out of it. Unlike the famous names we all now know and immortalize, I chose the safe path and finished school. The entrepreneurial spirit isn’t something that goes away or fades with time, and upon graduating, I found myself in a B2B startup as part of the initial launch and then the executive team. We grew quickly and within a few years were international and a public company.
After leaving that company, I founded one, sold it, founded another, helped start and grow the national brands group of a leading web development company, scaled an Inc 50 fastest growing company, and am now using technology to help disrupt an archaic highly “unsexy” industry that everyone sees but doesn’t realize it.
My focus is on growth, revenue, and not worrying about scale until it’s a problem that hinders the first two.
