Hello Fastlaners!

Thanks for letting me join the group.

A little about me...

I'm originally from New Zealand but now live in Colorado. I'm currently studying to earn an MBA. So far it's been useful to learn accounting, corporate finance, economics, and marketing, etc. My profession is 'software engineering'. I've been programming since I was a child (back then, on a Commodore 64). I studied computer science and have worked for start-ups, 'service companies', and large corporations. As a programmer, I get a lot of satisfaction from problem solving. I've held 'leadership positions' and enjoyed orchestrating projects. In my free time (not much), I like creating electronics projects and traveling. My focus now is on our Amazon business, and very very soon, our first child!

I'm exciting about what I can learn and share here.

My personal objectives are:
  • Make my Amazon business enormously successful
  • Graduate (and have more free time to focus on business opportunities and family)
  • Have the freedom to exercise my creativity for profit (e.g. new software or inventions involving electronics)
  • Be a great dad
Thanks for having me!

I followed the science; all I found was money.

Welcome! I've been thinking recently about children as leverage in entrepreneurial endeavours. Sounds obvious, really, but I never considered as a positive just how great a dependent is for getting one out of bed early. (Well, a newborn will be getting you out of bed at all kinds of hours, but hopefully that'll settle down after a year or so!)

Thought I'd share an update. Photo of our wee one attached.

Welcome to the forum :). I never studied coding my experience was more towards solving computer related problems from end users, systems, network appliances, etc.

My previous positions never required it or used any coding.
