After a two week EPIC
road trip from Dallas, Texas to Los Angeles (via Austin, San Diego, and Newport Beach) with some of my buddies, I left corporate America in July 2012, just a year after graduating college in order to start NewGen Consultants
, a web design and SEO agency, along with a friend from high school.
I learned a lot about myself, business, and life in that time. We were working crazy hours, building a business, and living the good life… with trips to Orlando, the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Europe, NYC, and everywhere in between. We grew that business to six-figures in just 13 months, despite not having a clear strategy or growth plan.
Business happens fast. And if you go in blind, you can come out with some bumps and scrapes along the way. In our case, we didn’t know much about scaling a business, so by the time we hit six-figures we were getting burnt out, stopped enjoying our clients, and started looking for a way out.
