Quick update from me. Happy May!
Hola (since we're at Cinqo de Mayo)! It's been a little over a month since our little startup was born and we are loving it. My other co-founder is Stuart (@StuartAxelOwen) - an endearing smart fashion loving engineer. We haven't been around that long and we are not just about the product or solution, but about creating a company with meaning and mission. We went to Kyle Kesterson (@kylekesterson) talk on startups and culture and it's been foundational in helping us refine our culture and teaming. We're in the pre-accelerator program called SWNext right now - loving the mentors (like Shauna Casey, Dave Parker, Joanna Lord, Kyle Kesterson, ...). We've applied early decision to the accelerator program, TechStars (cross your fingers and toes and send good vibes for us into the universe).
Anyways, I am nearing or at a point where obviously I'm going to have to make some clear decisions to focus. I love my current company (Logic20/20). I love my furniture design opportunity having had my patent officially come through on March 23, 2014 (www.arrytable.com). I love this startup called GiftStarter (we are potentially going to give the company a new name shortly - stay tuned). I love my marriage and family. Pray for me to find the right path and focus, to make the best choices.
And please sign up on www.giftstarter.co to get our email updates as we progress on our startup journey. I'll be sending out the email updates and would love your support.
I host a weekly AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Fridays, 12-1pm PST. You can sign up on meetup.com under the Blockchain Underground.
