Like many, I’ve been lurking for some time and wanted to introduce myself.
I’ve been involved in startups for the last 25 years and a few years ago started PilotLight.io. It’s a one person show and I’ve bootstrapped everything myself (development, marketing, sales, operations, etc.). A little over a year ago I left a local company to go back out full-time on my own mixing consulting work (to pay the bills) and grow PilotLight. I’ve got roughly 15 long-term paying customers and with a new version of the service plan to grow it to where it provides all my income along with the ability to work anywhere.
I attended my first MicroConf - Starter this year and have built a small network of mentors here in Boulder, CO that I lean on for guidance on everything from tech to accounting, life-hacking as an entrepreneur, sales and pricing techniques, and more.
When I’m not in front of the computer toiling away I teach people how to ride their big adventure motorcycles off-road; in particular, BMW adventure bikes.
Looking forward to learning and sharing with you all!
