I am noticing a trend forming in my life.
I’ve been more open to starting a few new projects lately and so I decided to update this blog and create a spot where you can go to at any point in time and check out what I am working on. You can find the link at the top right of the header menu bar on this blog.
Below you can see a snippet of things I am up to right now. More will probably come soon but this is what is happening at this point in time in my life. Given the fact I am currently also doing some outside contract work for other companies, I am only listing the projects/companies I have founder or equity stake in.
And reach out to me if you are interested in partnering or getting involved with any of them.
Seconds is a payment system allowing you to swiftly complete transactions via the desktop web, mobile web or text message. It shouldn’t matter what method you use, the payment experience should be as quick, simple and intuitive as sending a text message. Realizing how important ongoing relationships are between customers and merchants, and also realizing the main point of entry into our world is now through our mobile device, we see an incredible opportunity.
Callin’it is a mobile web based real-time sports prediction and data analysis platform. Using Callin’it, people are able to test and share their sports knowledge by publically predicting – or calling – stats, plays or outcomes of an upcoming sporting event. For instance, right now I am calling the Miami heat will have more rebounds than the Chicago Bulls in tonight’s game. Using real time sports data, we then compare the specific call with the actual result to build out a score for each user based on the accuracy and difficulty of their calls. If Twitter and the ‘SAT’s for sports’ had a baby, Callin’it would be their lovechild…
Founders Raw is my newest project, a video blog with conversation style interviews focused on bringing out raw stories early stage founders experience in their rough and tumble entrepreneurial journeys. I invite founders to talk openly over a beer or a coffee about the “truth” of how they survive and grow their companies. We intend on slicing up the conversations and sending out daily videos no more than 3 or 4 minutes long so we all can receive daily nuggets of the entrepreneurial truth.
The Agony and Ecstasy of Entrepreneurship
The Agony and Ecstasy of Entrepreneurship has been adapted from this blog, So Entrepreneurial, and placed into book format. They are my thoughts and musings on all things entrepreneurial, meant to help you understand what it takes and how to think like an entrepreneur in today’s world. Far from perfect and by no means the only way to go about the journey, they represent my lessons taken straight from the trenches. Since my thoughts originated as blog posts it’s best to take them piecemeal, maybe even digesting just a few topics each day. You will find my main perspectives are around mobile, digital and internet technologies but the principles can be applied to any other entrepreneurial focus.
