Below are recent projects I'm proud to PoINT TO and say,
"Yeah, I helped build that."
Next Level Ballplayer | Brand & Marketing consulting
Fourth Water Business Accelerator + Coworking Space | Economic development work in the third world
The Fundraising Playbook: Tools & Tactics—Small Things That Drive Big Impact | eBook and resource for volunteers and missionaries needing to raise personal financial support to drive their work.
"Golf & Give" Doulos Discovery School Golf Outing | Fundraiser Benefit — raised over $50k for educational nonprofit work in the last three years from this benefit alone.
The Beach Shirt | Entrepreneurial side-hustle — experiment in entrepreneurship which grew legs and has been fizzling along since 2010. (win: minimal effort, run itself, wins: piggy backing on platforms like etsy, learn: sourcing internationally is hard)
Croley Martell & Associates / Main Market Partners | Boutique corporate turnaround consultancy and sister private equity firm.
These are just a few projects, initiatives, and ventures I've been involved with and am particularly proud of. I view them as tangible evidence of meaningful problems being solved and laboratories of learning. To see my full work experience, let's connect on linkedin.
Experimentation + curiosity + hard work is a powerful recipe for clarifying how interests and abilities can meet the needs of the world. Here are a few other past ventures, projects, and hustles which are notable cocktail-party-conversation-worthy hustles from my past:
- Crab cake broker. Because who doesn't love crab cakes.
- Interior and exterior house renovations. There's just something about putting in a hard day of physical labor that does the soul good.
- Once slotted (with distance) a field goal from 35 yards out for $500 at halftime of a college football game. #truestory
