I grew up in the Middle Tennessee area, mostly in Manchester (now known for Bonnaroo & being half way between Nashville & Chattanooga) but also consider the woods & Boy Scout Camps in the area as a second home.
Went to college at Tennessee Tech University where I meet my lovely wife in the first weeks of my freshman year.
Since college I have focused on our future. Building businesses, investing in businesses, and helping people improve their systems.
We are now rather settled in outside Nashville & have two children.
Current Major Projects
Taking care of the twins – The two precious girls in the picture take a huge portion of my time. My wife works 24 hour shifts. This in turn means that I am on duty the night before (normally not a big issue) & then on average 5 to 8 hours after – while she recovers. This means blocks of 32 to 36 hours at a time I have my primary focus on them. Normally about 7 times per month.
AllyNation – supporting private solutions to public problems. This is the brand for when we work with the public. Only settled on recently, in the past many names have been used, but all coaching, website development & maintenance, and products fall in this area.
Projects on Hold
With new babies, limited time, and need to focus, here are some projects I desire to work on, but are looking for the right people to work with, or just less time on other stuff (like diaper changes).
NationInvestors – My company partners, invests in, and helps businesses. This is for closer relationships than what AllyNation does.
HarborLore – had plans, did not work out … thinking of a sailing focused site … I really like sailing
Ready4Rehab – a Real Estate Investing (wholesaling specifically) business. Have most of the systems ready, just needs the right champion/partner/employee.
ArtistInsider – Started as a podcast focused on success in talent based industries. We podfaded, but I would like to build & grow this into a network focused on success in talent based industries, with not only the flagship show similar to the old ArtistInsider, but also with smaller shows for painting, video games, writing, or other talent based industries. This is another — Looking for the right champion/partners/employees type of thing.
StartingCube – a show, released as a podcast, that takes a clip and presents it. Many people use them as inspiration towards their dreams. I also use them with clients, easier to send a 5 minute mp3 then have the same conversation.
