He has been starting businesses online for a long time — some have failed, some have succeed in a massive way.
Today’s guest cleared his own path to success with over 30 years of hard work and it paid off big time.
At 29 and living in his home country of Australia, he decided that a life in Public Accounting was not for him! He quit his job and went to California to look for a new business idea and to surf all the legendary breaks.
He is a self-described “everyday guy” who is passionate about connecting with others, communicating, leveraging new media & cultivating a community of like-minded citizens.
He is currently the co-founder WithCircle, where they build software for teams that want to stay connected. Before most people have even started on their idea, this man has started, pivoted, and pivoted again on his way to building an amazing startup.
He attended the McGuire Center for Entrepreneurship at the University of Arizona, where he came up with an innovative business idea —- subscription based coffee —- and called it MistoBox.
Unfortunately, like many things in life, I don’t always do as I say — but I am striving to change this. During today’s conversation I learned many things, but more importantly I learned something that has changed my way of thinking about business and life.
Being in the business of selling software, I have admired Patrick’s work for years, so I was a bit starstruck at the beginning of the conversation — all this aside, we get to some great stuff and have a few laughs (at ourselves) too.
