I started solo in my bedroom/office back before home working was a thing. I've built a few technology businesses, such as a Q&A social network called Blurtit, a top 100 traffic website at 16 million visitors per month in the day. However, I've never taken outside funding unless you count your credit card, so I had to learn lean ways to generate traction.
As Blurtit started to decline, I invested in traditional and startup companies and bought two SAAS businesses to scale.
Now I spend my time investing and helping early-stage technology and crypto projects.
In a previous life, I was a trek leader and aid worker working in around 15 countries from Tajikistan to Nepal, so I’m interested in adventure sports like skiing and grass routes charity projects.
I believe you can create the life your want while creating value for the world. Plus, work and life should be balanced, and your career can be as rewarding as you choose to make it.
