In 2006, I founded my first online venture out of my college dorm room, selling and buying student textbooks. I rapidly scaled my e-commerce business, bootstrapping from a $20 student – cause initiative to a multi-million dollar e-tailer clocking in revenues in excess of $25 million on Amazon across a 6 year period while serving over 10,000 customers. But I always had one problem. It took me way too long to find talent.

I built FreeeUp to address the frustrations I had. FreeeUp receives hundreds of freelancer applicants each week to join the marketplace. We interview and vet them, take the top 1% (based on skill, attitude and communication), and make them available to our clients quickly whenever they need them. On the backend, we have 24/7 support to make sure people have a good experience. Lastly, we have a no turnover guarantee covering replacement costs if the freelancer ever quits. We work with thousands of business all over the world.

Honesty, integrity, ethics and superlative customer experience have always been the four professional cornerstones of my success.

About Scott Young

I started writing this blog just before my 18th birthday, so in many ways, it has mirrored my own life as an adult. The blog started when I was very interested in behavior change, and you can see many articles about this obsession. Later I left for university and began considering socializing and productivity as topics to explore. Learning became an important topic, and eventually created the foundation for a full-time business I could run, selling courses to learners about the methods I’d uncovered. Finally, as I left school, the idea of continued self-mastery and career development interested me.Beyond writing, entrepreneurship and life philosophy, my interests include programming, travel, cooking and teaching myself anything I can.

  • Mission of Universal Dialect

  • Splitting daily duties
  • Focusing and Managing time

What We Do:

We love soccer. In fact, it’s our single greatest passion. While we’d love to play all day, every day, the game only lasts 90 minutes.

We make activewear that you’ll love to wear while you’re taking on the rest of life’s daily adventures.

Grab Life in all that you do, and pay it forward by helping kids play The Beautiful Game through our social mission.

Our “Why?”

Through our travels, we realized that the world has a unique problem – we consistently came across communities where people loved playing soccer, but they lacked the only necessary item to play: a soccer ball.

We started Universal Dialect as a way to help get soccer balls to less-fortunate footballers around the world. We eventually created a sustainable model to fund the giving through high performance activewear.

About Marshall:

Often, it’s not our goals that foster success; it’s the ability to conquer our innate fear of failure. As a passion-driven, people-focused ENFP, I use my optimistic outlook and love for new challenges to empower others to “do what they can’t” and discover that “impossible” is simply relative to the mindset you choose to live by.

I strive to help people expand that mindset through creating accessible opportunities to embrace new experiences and conquer one’s fear of failure. As a professional action sports enthusiast in whitewater kayaking, mountain biking, snowboarding, scuba diving, and aviation, I use my passion for the outdoors and the world around us to help others discover their potential, challenge their perceived limits, and adopt an empowering lifestyle of focus and fulfillment.

I truly believe in the potential of Responsible Risk-Taking as a catalyst for innovation and seek to scale this mindset through the world’s most innovative companies, empowering their team culture through recurring dynamic shared experiences, designed and implemented via Vestigo.

About Rick:

A pioneer of technology with the vision of making the bullet obsolete, Rick founded the original company, TASER International, in 1993. As the TASER device became ubiquitous in law enforcement, Rick pushed the company beyond weapons technology and towards a broader purpose of matching technology to public safety needs in order to make the world a safer place. Under his leadership, the company has grown from a garage in Tucson to a NASDAQ-listed global market leader in conducted energy weapon, body-worn cameras and software. In April 2017, TASER International officially changed its name to Axon Enterprise to better represent the entire network of devices, people and applications. Today, more than 18,000 law enforcement agencies in more than 100 countries are a part of the Axon network.

Rick graduated from Harvard with a B.S. in Neuroscience (Cum Laude) and later earned a Master in International Finance from the University of Leuven in Belgium and an MBA from the University of Chicago.

Rick’s mission to obsolete the bullet has been chronicled in The New Yorker as well as ForbesandGQRick’s 2018 op-ed on suggesting a grand challenge to help reduce gun violence in schools was published by CNBC. That same year, Rick was named one of Arizona’s Most Admired Leaders by Phoenix Business Journal and Axon was named one of 2018’s Most Admired Companies by Arizona Business Magazine. Rick rocked the tech industry when he announced a first-of-its-kind employee compensation plan allowing employees to align their pay directly with value creation for shareholders. The eXponential Stock Performance Plan earned media coverage in Bloomberg, GeekWireWorld at Workand more.

Rick is a frequent guest on CNBC’s Mad Money and has also appeared on CBS’ This MorningThe Street and more.

“Many people concerned about gun violence want to alter laws. Rick Smith is focusing on a tech solution.” – Geekwire

“Can the Manufacturer of Tasers Provide the Answer to Police Abuse?” – The New Yorker

“Billion-dollar award made CEO uneasy. Now he’s fixing it.” – Bloomberg

“Rick Smith is known as the ‘Steve Jobs of policing technology’ — and this book reflects his well-deserved reputation. Rick envisions a world free of gun violence. This is a must-read for those who share his bold vision to enhance safety in our communities!” – Kathleen O’Toole, Former Police Chief

Episode 57 will forever be one of my favorites as I speak with good friend and software founder, Doug Neumann. I went on location to Doug’s house to talk with him about his entrepreneur journey, making the switch from corporate america, getting support from his wife, and much more.

Doug is the Co-Founder of Arpio, a Data Redundancy Software built specifically for Amazon Web Services customers.

This is a really special episode as Doug isn’t known to many but not only is he a tremendous human being but he’s living the “Just Get Started” life by pressing forward through a lot of fear and uncertainty to follow his passion to start his own software business.

Had a great time on episode 39 speaking with the Founder of RepVue, Ryan Walsh, about his journey from his college days at UNC and early career to how he helped grow ChannelAdvisor to become a couple hundred million dollar company and publicly traded.

Episode 38 features our first “Digital Nomad” on the Podcast in Entrepreneur Jinny Oh. Jinny is the Founder of WANDR and travels all over the world to explore the endless possibilities that are out there as well as continue her mission to grow her company WANDR. We get into some great discussions about how she has scaled her company, leadership, remote employees, and of course about traveling!

About Jinny Oh

Hi, I’m Jinny—an entrepreneur who’s lived, studied and traveled around the world. My passion for exploring led me to a digital nomad lifestyle, from which I built a multi-million dollar business in product design and strategy. From features like Forbes to speaking engagements, and as a startup advisor—I owe it all to the experiences I’ve had and the people I’ve met while working remote and traveling the world.

In 2016, I started WANDR to empower startup founders with better user experiences. Since then, we’ve launched over 250 brands and worked with several Fortune 500 companies to re-shape their product strategy. Below are some of the clients I’ve worked with.

I currently serve as an equity partner for Partner.lyTrendi and KaptionThis, which I’ve helped build, launch and/ or advised.

In October 2017, I found myself energized with a growing online audience. When my LinkedIn Post on “sacrifice as a founder” reached over 20 million views, it led to countless opportunities. I’ve since traveled nationally and globally for speaking engagements and podcast interviews on topics such as Design Innovation, Designing User Experiences, My Journey as an Entrepreneur, Life of an LinkedIn Influencer, and more!

I packed up for my first solo trip at sixteen years old. I’ve since traveled to over 40 countries, lived in 5 countries, and fluently speak 3 different languages. I travel to discover new cultures, and challenge my creativity along the way. Some of my favorite places include: Colombia, Greece, China, Iceland, Spain, and Indonesia.

About GiveButter

It all started with a simple idea: build a transparent, low-cost, all-in-one giving platform to help people raise more money for good causes. We knew there were plenty of people doing some aspect of this already, but we believed we could do it butter.

We jumped in by coding for friends who wanted to fundraise for everything from kosher food trucks to fashion shows for kids with cancer, and before we knew it, they began sharing our work with others.

Fast-forward two years, and we’ve been able to help raise millions of dollars for good causes spanning over 300 college campuses, alongside many of the world’s leading nonprofits.

Our vision is to build a world where every person makes giving a part of their lives. Our mission: Eat. Sleep. Give. Do you?

Had a fun time speaking to Stephanie and understanding the path to her success and what keeps her ticking day in and day out. This gal has a great head on her shoulders and is head down in health and nutrition not only for herself but for her family and clients as well. Excited to see how she continues to push the envelope with her business and help people get in the best shape of their lives!

About Stephanie

Stephanie is a personal trainer and health coach based in Little Rock, AR. She is a certified ACE Personal Trainer and IIN (Institute for Integrative Nutrition) Health Coach with a passion for helping others learn the importance of a healthy lifestyle.

For Stephanie, exercise has always been her go-to “cure” for anything from sleepless nights to a bad mood. She firmly believes endorphins is the best medicine you can give your body—That and healthy, nutritious foods, of course.

As a wife and mom of 3 boys, setting a good example in terms of health has always been one of Stephanie’s top priorities. She strives to create healthy meals for her family every day and often shares her recipes on her blog. Even if her clients are solely there to exercise, Stephanie always talks to them about their diet before training even begins.

No matter what fitness level you are, Stephanie is eager and ready to help. She says the most important thing is to “just start.” As a personal trainer, Stephanie likes to keep her work outs fresh, so expect a variety of HITT, weight training, endurance training and Tabata.

Stephanie believes that health looks different on everyone, and that “God created us all in different shapes and sizes,” hence why she creates personalized plans for each and every client. She truly loves encouraging and pushing her clients to show them that they can do it and can achieve their goals no matter how high they’re set.
