As far back I can always remember… I wanted to be an entrepreneur.
1999 - Graduated college.
Went to work as a consultant at Arthur Anderson.
Worked with the best…. for a whole 6 months, until….
I created my first website of a fake band called NSHIT, Because my friend looked like Justin Timberlake.
The website got some attention. People started asking me to design their website.
I started selling them for $500. Real estate sites, lawyers sites, marinas, salons.
Got busy enough to quit my day job. My entrepreneurial journey had just started.
Then... Hired my first employee.
Managed, delegated, released creative control.
Fast forward 12 years. We grew from selling $500 projects to a multimillion dollar agency working with….
Lotus Cars, Hitachi, Aflac, Coke, Legal Zoom
2012 - We were acquired.
I stayed on as an executive. 9 months later we were sold to a public company.
I was done, but what a ride.
At 35 years young, I didn’t know what I wanted to do next.
I struggled to figure out if I wanted to start another agency when my noncompete was up, or did I want to try something new.
2014 - My old competitor reached out to me, asking me for help with some of their challenges.
Loved providing them a resource I wish I had.
