Paddleboarding and Business :: A Tale of Perseverance
AUGUST 13, 2015
The first time I tried to stand up on a board was in a lagoon in north San Diego county. Looking back, there were a lot of obvious parallels when I started my first company, CoolerEmail, 15 years ago. I was doing consulting and working on building software that made it easy for people to design, send, and track email newsletters. It took 3 years before I could stop the consulting and focus entirely on my business. We were first-movers in a new industry.
