I've spent most of my working life in an extremely bureaucratic industry, and I'm in the middle of changing that. I've always had an entrepreneurial itch, so I took a risk by leaving a very prestigious and comfortable job at NASA in order to pursue startup ventures. I went to a top tier business school with special concentration on business development and venture capital.
I founded a company called Fansure, which is a service for sports fans attending games hoping to see a particular star player(s). Fans who purchased tickets can buy separate protection from us which entitles them to 50% of their ticket cost reimbursed if their favorite player(s) ends up missing the game they attend.
We're always looking for people that are passionate about sports and game experiences. Contact me if you're interested in helping out! https://fansureit.com
“Make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty.” - Jon Krakauer
