Creative Collaborative - Jonathan Johnson

Last night I attended Creative Collaborative.  I had a really fun time catching up with friends, such as, Stately Type, Old Home Love, and Stephanie Hock Art.  I also met Phil Jackson, this really cool artist, not the basketball coach.   Tonight Jonathan E. Johnson III spoke.  He is the Overstock.com’s chairman and he is also running for Utah Governor.  His presentation covered some problems that Overstock solved in getting to 1.5 billion in revenue.  As a fellow recovering attorney, it was exciting to see another individual who has been able to exit the legal world and have a successful career.  My notes from his presentation are below: When You Can Solve Problems for Two Groups of People You have...

Podcast Launch

I am really excited to finally have my podcast uploaded on iTunes!  You can find my podcast, Entrepreneur Stories, here.  Just getting my podcast up on iTunes took a lot of time, and I am still waiting on Stitcher to approve my podcast.  Currently, there are two episodes that are uploaded.   In the first episode, I interview Nate Quigley, the CEO and Co-Founder of Chatbooks.  Nate’s entrepreneurial journey started as a teenager doing “dirty, sweaty jobs” with his buddies during the summer, such as mowing lawns, sealing driveways, and cleaning up garbage.  Since his teenage years, Nate has gone on to be a part of two separate startups that have since been acquired.  Now, he is in midst of...
