Introducing Everyday Empires
Weekly interviews with everyday people who are building their everyday empires
After a decade as the first or second employee at three early-stage startups, I recently transitioned into being a stay-at-home dad for my two young boys.
My first goal was simple: find my groove as a stay-at-home dad.
We've had our ups and downs, and it’s not easy, but we’ve found our groove.
Now, it's time for my next goal: Build a business that allows me to continue to stay home with my boys.
Like any aspiring entrepreneur, I started brainstorming business ideas.
My list is a mile long.
From solving everyday problems to grandiose schemes, it's a wild collection of potential ventures.
But how do you pick the right idea? How do you even start?
I reached out to a variety of founders, asking how they got started, what their state of mind was before they took the leap, and if they were juggling other ideas.
Their responses were enlightening and relatable.
These founders were just like you and me – learning as they go.
That's when it hit me.
What if I shared these conversations with others? What if these stories could inspire other would-be entrepreneurs to take that crucial first step?
So, here we are. Each week, I'll bring you candid interviews with everyday founders who are building their empires. You'll hear their stories, their struggles, and their triumphs.
