Hey! Over Here!



Everything You Should Know About Startup


I'm going to answer all the stupid (and not-so-stupid) questions about startup so you don't have to ask them.

Introducing the first end-to-end guide to startup for new and existing entrepreneurs. Everything You Should Know About Startup covers 121 foundational concepts of entrepreneurship in 25 connected chapters. It's a quick read, meant to be read through once, then referred to over and over again at every stage of startup.

Almost everything I've ever written

Who am I? Who the eff are you?


I believe in entrepreneurism, but I hate a lot of the stuff around startup. I built and sold Automated Insights, ExitEvent, Intrepid Media, and a few more. If you're curious, it's all in my LinkedIn.
I made a bunch of videos in a series called Teaching Startup, where I and a few other entrepreneuers discuss the cross-section of startup, sports, parenting, and pop-culture.
I'm the frontman for American Titans, a loud, tight, intelligent, three-piece rock band. This is real. We play shows and record songs and generally try to keep the dream alive.
I've written for the Chicago Tribune, Smug, O'Reilly, GamaSutra, and other pubs. I've spoken at SXSW a few times, also NABShow, Columbia University, the United Nations, and other places and events.
