As we all get ready to welcome in 2018 and say goodbye to 2017 I wanted to take some time to reflect on a few things as well as discuss the future. For many, 2017 was sucky (myself included). It certainly wasn’t my favorite year in the 28 years I’ve been on this earth but what seemed to be an overall terrible year is actually ending on a slightly better note than I anticipated, at least for me–more on that in a little.
In 2017 I had to make an extremely difficult decision: to shut down KYA, the company I started back in April 2014 to help digital media companies better understand their audiences with a new kind of analytics product. Working on KYA over the past three years was an incredible experience, I learned so much and my team and I literally turned an idea into a fully functioning product. It was such a journey and without a doubt it was a journey worth taking. Thank you to everyone who came along for the ride.
I recently started looking for new opportunities and companies to join where I believe I can make an impact. Despite only recently starting to look for a new job, I’m seeing how difficult it can be. I’m looking for a role in any of the following areas: business development/strategy, marketing, content, or partnerships. I have a wide ranging set of skills having built two companies over the years. If you or someone you know is hiring I’d appreciate any introduction, feel free to email me.
While working on KYA I put BestTechie on the back burner, but now that I have more time to spend on BT I’ve spent the past two months increasing the amount of time I’ve been working on site and have seen some success. I’ve already doubled the site’s monthly revenue which is a nice way to end 2017. I plan to continue to create content more frequently in 2018, including much more video content.
So yeah, 2017 sucked but I’m excited to see what 2018 has in store. I have a feeling this time next year things will be pretty awesome.
As Buzz Lightyear says, to infinity and beyond!
