About Pat

I'm founding a start up that focuses on cellphone plans. We have a few early wins: in early April 2017, Verizon verbally approved the site as an approved vendor. We are hyper focusing on just 3 zip codes in suburban Chicago. Sprint has signed up a few stores in these zip codes as has Verizon. Calls and meetings with AT&T and TMobile have gone well, but the approval process takes patience as there are many layers and turn over.
My primary developer has moved on to his own B2B site within the Construction space which is gaining traction, so I'm in the market for a new developer. The carriers have each said that nothing like this solution exists in the marketplace and the feedback has been positive. No paying customers, but I'm close to having test cases with 4 of the major carriers. Please contact me if you are interested - I hate to be so vague with my description.

Quote

As with learning guitar, consistent playing, even 15 minutes a day, can really develop into someting over time. Anything worth pursuing takes more time than you think. 2) The ability to deal with people is as purchasable a commodity as sugar or coffee and I will pay more for that ability than for any other under the sun. 3) I do not think that there is any other quality so essential to success of any kind as the quality of perseverance. It overcomes almost everything, even nature. - JDR
