What I'm up to...

This is a “now page”, and you should make one too.

We’re currently just outside of Dallas, but we’re migrating to a small Colorado mountain town in early 2017. So we’re starting the first steps for that great migration, and it’s beginning to require more and more of our attention.

I’m a little over three years into medical issues that ultimately led to a left below-knee amputation August 29th, 2016. I’m in the process of bouncing back from that. I recently walked in a test socket for the first time. I just received my temporary prosthesis and can’t begin to describe the joy I’m feeling to be so close to walking again without pain for the first time in over three years. I’m not sure who’s more excited, our 5-year-old Bella or me.

These last few years took their toll and played a part in deciding to sell the company I spent eight years building, and now I’m spending a good amount of my free time writing a book to help others avoid my mistakes. (I’m also publishing the first edition for free on Medium.) It’s a project that’s becoming more and more exciting as I talk to people and try to help others who are interested in starting their own SaaS businesses. I can’t wait until it’s ready to share.

During the day, I’m spending my time helping with marketing type stuff full-time at Wildbit. It’s a lot of fun, and it’s nice to work with a full team again after being mainly solo for years. After running an application for eight years, it’s a pleasant change of pace. There’s still a constant itch to start something and build off of all of my Sifter experience, but that’s not where my head is at right now. So instead, I’m funneling all of that knowledge and expertise into my book.

If you have questions about starting or running a SaaS application, I’d love to help. Just email me or say hello on Twitter.
