On November 23, 1998 I jumped into the entrepreneurial waters. Since then, I’ve started three successful businesses (website design, branded music CDs and Internet broadcasting). For each of those businesses, I’ve been fortunately enough to have, on average, about a 10 foot commute to work.
That is, until about ten days ago.
For some time now, I’ve been working on a concept for a new type of offering from PodWorx. It’s an idea that I’m very excited about and one where the technology has caught up with the vision. It’s never been attempted here in Las Vegas and based on the feedback I’ve received from a group of very smart folks who’ve been briefed (after signing a Non-Disclosure Agreement), there’s a lot to be excited about.
To create the environment necessary for this new concept, I have to expand beyond my existing work environment. As a result, I have found myself in the land of commercial real estate. After a relatively-short search, I was connected with a great guy/landlord and a great space from which to launch this project.
After securing a small amount of funds from outside sources, on August 2nd, 2010, I accepted the keys to my first commercial property! A wave of excitement, fear, anticipation and the unknown washed over me. I’m not a Builder-Bob kind of guy, so I was nervous. Luckily, I have two GREAT friends (Rip and Wade) who are helping me build what I believe will be one of the coolest video studios in town.
The video above is the first of several I’ll be recording during the building process. We’re still in stealth mode but I wanted to share the process as best I can. Ten days into the project, I’ve learned a lot, spend a great deal of time at Home Depot and Ahern Rental, and feel as if my credit card is beginning to melt.
Stay tuned. . .
