In your lifetime you don't get many at bats but when you're up, you have to get in the batter's box and swing with all you have.
To have someone believe in you is both an amazing and scary feeling. I am fortunate to have a lot of those someones. My partners at Price Edwards, my wife and family, my friends, the MIS team at Price Edwards and my cohort at ServiceVines have all come together to help create an amazing opportunity for me. Starting today I begin work full-time on my startup ServiceVines. I am also beyond excited to have Jeremy Branecky join me in this adventure.
Many people imagine what they would do if they could "do anything", for me ServiceVines is that thing.
There's never been a better time to start a company. There's never been more opportunity than right now. We are living in the new industrial revolution. In my lifetime we've gone from having to rent your home telephone from the phone company to using a "anywhere" phone to communicate worldwide for free, and using the same device to tell you where to eat, how to get there and even pay for your meal. The mobile internet is truly transformative in a way that future generations will not be able to even relate to problems of past societies. Every part of our world is changing. With startups like uber and airbnb the days of people using their phone to get what they need is at a fever pitch. ServiceVines has over almost 1,000 pros now, an iPhone app and a great design,
I'm ready to make it into a scalable startup.
I'm also glad to be building it here in Oklahoma City. The city has transformed over the past few years and I'm glad I've been here to see it. There's a lot of Startups doing great work in OKC now and I'm happy to be able to join them in all nighters, meet ups and focus all my attention and effort.
Thanks for all your support. Let's set the world on fire!
I'm building a startup called ServiceVines. I live far out from civilization and like it. I get really too excited over tech, economics, and food.
