And, that’s when I realized the venture capital rep sitting opposite from me was completely unqualified. See? I’m getting ahead of myself, already.
In 2009, upon graduating college and entering the “workforce“, I realized there had to be something more to life. The hustling I was doing at work was paying off, and I was offered the opportunity to move into more of a biz dev role. But, I said fuck it, gave a four day notice, and moved to Seattle. For a job that didn’t pay.
Since then, I’ve experienced a recurring theme where I grow professionally, get really bored, and move on. The only thing that hasn’t bored me is the challenge of starting a scalable business*; and, perhaps that’s why I’m here today. It’s time to pour my experiences into the field guide, per se.
* ok – independent satellite communication research @ AFRL/HAARP following my sophomore year was awesome, too. That was a once in a lifetime opportunity.
So, to manage expectations, here is what you will get -
- straight from the gut stories about my entrepreneurial adventures,
- a roller coaster ride of emotions as you join me, and
- a stamp in your passport to prove you’ve visited “The Field Guide“
But seriously, enough about you. It’s now time for me to tell some stories.
