Hello world! I’m in the process of setting up my new tech startup. I feel super excited! A little scared but at my age (36), I think it’s good to shake up the heart a tad bit.
I’ve been thinking about launching a new startup for the last year and a half, ever since I started working at Cheil Worldwide. I’m not really a corporate guy. After I decided to leave the comforts and security of Cheil/Samsung, I made the jump.
The last year and a half has been really interesting. I learned a lot about myself. I met a lot of interesting people. And I learned a great deal about how the big corporations do business. Mainly, I learned about the flow of big money.
I didn’t make plan the startup alone. I got permission from my wife. And I a formed a solid team.
For the last 2 months, my team and I have been on full pivot mode. We keep coming up with new ideas or different variations of ideas we’ve had in the past. To be honest, it gets really taxing. I fear that I’m not that smart. I fear that I’m just like everybody else and I should just be happy with a corporate gig.
But fuck it! I’ll be 40 soon. And I ain’t dead yet.
Move fast and break things…and lets see what happens.
