Two Weeks Notice

July 18, 2015    

Yesterday (Friday), I did something for the first time…. turned in a “two weeks notice” at work. I guess it’s not that big’a deal but-for what it means to me, my family, and the future of PoliticalBank. Beginning Saturday, August 1, I’m a fulltime employee of PoliticalBank, LLC. A Saturday unlike any other, I imagine. […]

It’s all in a name

July 14, 2015    

I forget the first website name I pitched to Theresa, but I’m pretty sure it was “IssuePAC.” I liked the name CrowdPAC and tried to play off it. But, I agree with Theresa… IssuePAC is terrible. At least for our vision of the company. So what to name it… I played around on godaddy for […]

I shared my idea with a buddy who directed me to a fraternity brother who teaches at Stanford. […]

“Hello World.” – PoliticalBank.com

July 5, 2015    

As young Eldrick Woods said in August 1996, ‘I guess, hello world, huh?’ PoliticalBank.com is less than sixty-days from launch. I just finalized this “landing page,” which will be replaced eventually with a site twelve months in the making. How do I feel? A little nervous… but very optimistic. As a prelude to going live, […]
