Millie & Home

With Amy gone (she left us May 26th, 2019 and we were divorced in January 2020), and now Mozy gone (passed 12/14/20) most of my time is spent taking care of Millie and the house. Taking care of Millie is almost a full time job - I'm kidding, but I make it a full time job! I've been enjoying taking care of everything on my own, it's been challenging, but I think I've got the hang of it. I thought I'd be depressed being alone (after the separation), but it's actually quite awesome. I could get used to this.

Personal Health & Wellness

I'm always learning about and improving on my health - in 2016 I begun a program to create a sustainable diet plan for myself, which I've tweeted about since starting. It's called a ``365-Day Challenge``, where for an entire year I eat healthy and maintain a diet and exercise schedule - it’s a long game. In addition to physical and dietary health, I’m also working on my mental, which has deteriorated since selling my company in 2013. I read books on personal growth, I meditate daily and do Yoga once a week, and I’m also starting to see a therapist to help with some of the transitional and relationship issues I’ve been dealing with for a while. I’ve blogged about my diet plan a few times, and written about my mental health as well. Through these blogs and tweets, I've helped over 20 people improve their health and lives, which is really inspirational to me. Reach out if I can help you.

Working at Xero

In March 2020, I was hired to lead Verticals for Xero. Xero is an accounting (software) platform competing with Quickbooks in the US. My remit is to scale the organization through small business segments throughout the US.

Laicos Startup Studio

Laicos is a Startup Studio and software development company. Some of my focus is on bringing in web development, design, or consultant contracts (revenue) to pay the bills. We’ve got a very talented full-stack team ready to go on a moment's notice, so I wanted to capitalize on the bandwidth available to help mid to enterprise clients build the software they need and bring in that revenue.

Helping & Mentoring Startups

Since 2012, I've been mentoring and advising early-stage startups, it's my passion. I love helping people start up and scale their companies. Most of the work that I do is pro-bono (ie. free), but I have on occasion accepted equity, board seats, or charged a retainer. If you're interested in my help, use the contact form and reach out.

This idea was inspired by the many entrepreneurs that came before me. Thank you.
