My foray into the entrepreneurial world started when I was just a kid with a keen eye and a passion for returning empties: since beer cans and bottles were worth twice as much as their pop counterparts, I would create strategies to maximize my exposure to those 10 cent treasures!
Eventually I went on to start my first official company, Tidal Multimedia, which became one the top web development agencies in western Canada and spawned my current software development company, Advisor Websites, a SAAS business creating websites for the financial services industry.
I also happen to have a small stake in an organic makeup line, Lippy Girl Makeup. This means that I know more than the average dude about beauty products and make for the occasional test subject as I happen to share a life and three children with the owner.
One of my more rigorous endeavours at the moment is serving as the Chairman of Radness for Bucketlist, a social media passion project of mine. Since having fun and helping people build, work toward, and achieve their life goals are important to me, I take this role very seriously.
When I'm not doing any of the above, you'll find me up a mountain in the snow or on a court or field depending on the time of year.
Some other bits and bytes:
- I’m working on checking off items from my own Bucket List
- I enjoy craft beer but won’t say no to a good old Coors Light if the occasion calls.
- I’m also not above wine that comes from a box.
- I have a business partner and his name is Jason. His site www.jasonlindstrom.net.
