From orange juice stands to VC backed startups I've been running businesses for as long as I can remember.

The thought that you could literally take your thoughts and ideas and turn them into real hard cash if you worked hard and smart enough...well, for a kid that grew up with a lot of big ideas and not a lot of money...that was the coolest thing ever.

I'm still a long ways from figuring it all out, but I've at least got a few battle scars from lessons hard learned. Along the way I've also been very fortunate to be blessed with amazing mentors and advisors.

This blog is my best effort to share the lessons I've in the hopes that others can benefit from them.

This blog is a continual work in progress, so if you have feedback or would just like to get in touch email me at michia@getprodigy.com
