In today’s episode, I interview Jordan Winn. The episode can be here. Jordan is the creative mind behind the winnlosedraw instagram account and he is also the founder of Dead Rooster Co, which is a dry rub barbeque company. In addition, Jordan also works on freelance design and photography.
Jordan is the fourth person I have interviewed who dropped out of college to pursue their dreams. Jordan was a senior in college when he decided to stop going to school so that he could pursue graphic designing full time. Jordan explains that he came to a crossroads - He could continue his studies, become a psychiatrist, and have a good income and steady job, or he could chase something that he was passionate about and become a designer.
Ultimately, Jordan decided to drop out of school and pursue his passion as a designer. After a couple of years working on his craft full-time, he had the opportunity to work for a software company and then an advertising agency. Now, Jordan has decided to work for himself as a freelancer and focus on his own companies.
