A serial entrepreneur, I have started several companies, with more failures than successes. I am strange, some tell me, because I place so much more value on the failures than anything else. My background is technology. I have started a hardware product company, two technical services companies, and a technology licensing company. I have been the principal designer/developer in each case. I have developed code in everything from assembly to PHP to c#, designed digital/analog/radio hardware, designed mechanical enclosures (SolidWorks), hired employees, raised money, thought about pulling my hair out more than once, cleaned bathrooms in my own company more times than I care to imagine, authored books and papers, given talks and lectures, and on and on. I love developing technology whether it is mechanical, electrical, or software but I love building companies more. To me, the crossroads where execution, luck, and people meet to achieve business success is absolutely fascinating. Currently, I have a real job working for an automation and controls company in the Oil and Gas market. It is the first real job I have had in almost 20 years. But I do enjoy it and I am learning a lot on the other side of the employer/employee relationship. I have to say that I still have the entrepreneurial bug, but I do enjoy that consistent paycheck as well. Can you have the best of both worlds? As me in a couple of years.
