I’m based in New York City, pursuing my “moon missions” of getting Millennials (and then everyone) to act on their passions in life and uniting them in solving the world’s most pressing problems. I’m currently spending almost all my time on the following:
(In order of time spent):
- Co-founding a (currently) “stealth” business venture…However, as a hint, it’s in the realms of enterprise SaaS and venture capital, so if you’re an experienced entrepreneur, investor, or software engineer in those spaces, get in touch!
- Researching and strategizing the production and marketing plans for my second book, which will be a follow-up to my first book, 2 Billion Under 20. The book-making process will begin very shortly!
- Being the go-to marketing consultant for Fortune 500s, Olympians, #1 NYT Bestselling authors, Forbes 30 Under 30 honorees, and more (especially brands and individuals looking to market and sell more effectively to Millennials).
- Growing and operating communities of the world’s smartest and most talented Millennials (my career has been built upon a foundation of time I’ve spent identifying, connecting, and supporting bright, unique, and ambitious peers of mine).
- Speaking around the world to large corporations, audiences at entrepreneurial conferences, universities, etc about my research, experiences, and perspective on topics pertaining to Millennials.
- Hosting dinner parties, attending events, or catching up with friends for interesting experiences (whether that means going to morning dance parties, swinging tickets to a sports game, traveling, or something crazier!).
These are my priorities. To achieve them, I can’t do anything that is not on this list or I’ll end up slacking in the “get sh*t done” department.
If someone asks me to do something that’s not on this list I have to say no (like podcasts or taking PR pitches – I’m not doing any podcast interviews for the time being, nor am I taking cold pitches to cover people in media outlets I contribute to).
I want to meet everyone and anyone, take a ton of phone calls, and have Skype dates all day long. My work-around for people I want to meet but don’t directly correlate to any of the top action items on my list is that I extend invites to monthly dinner parties or group events rather than running around the city taking dozens of coffee meetings. My friend Neil Strauss does the same thing, and I’ve actually met incredible people at his dinners by joining in on a larger event rather than pushing for a 1-on-1. It’s a value-add to everyone.

I will update this page as my priorities and activities change. Updated Feb 21, 2016
This page was inspired by Derek Sivers and his /now movement he champions. After seeing some new contacts use it and reading one of Sivers’ books, I decided to give it a try and link people to this page. Let me know what you think!
