Need help: Young business owner here who is absolutely bored of college...

Well, I'm 60.

I'll give you a backwards chronology:

since 2010 I've been the founder of company called Only Influencers. It is a well respected community for email marketers. I started it because:

In 2003 I launched a tech company from my garage called eDataSource. They just released record earnings statements. It was the first competitive intelligence tool for email marketers. It was the first product of its kind and 12 years later it is still the leader in the Email Intelligence space, a category I created.

In 2000 I launched my first full time company Emerging interest. John Scully was the keynote speaker at my launch party which took place at TBWA/Chiat Day. Joseph Jaffe worked there then when we became friends.

In 1999 I launched the Rich Media SIG, an after hours startup to educate advertisers on rich media technologies. In 6 months, it generated $100k in sponsorships and I was able to quit my full time job. I was 46.

In 1998 I was hired as the VRML Evangelist for SGI and developed and promoted the first rich media advertising products. I was part of the team that developed the term "rich media".

I got that job because in 1992 I had gone back to school and become an 3D animator and worked at the top 3D animation software company in the world just as 3D was taking off. I started writing about it and soon was a columnist for 3D Design magazine I never stopped writing.

I got into 3D when the art market fell apart. I came to New York in 1983 to pursue a career in art. I had two one man shows in the east village and I worked at the Whitney, National Academy of Design and other museums.

I came to new york to pursue painting after playing music for a decade in places like Austin Texas where I played with people like Townes Van Zandt and Lucinda Williams.

Before that I went to France to be henry miller.

And before that, I spent the most wonderful time of my life in college thinking dreaming, exploring, challenging, and being challenged.

good luck
