I want to write you a really honest email about the future of Under30CEO…As you guys have probably felt, our community has lost a lot of its luster. What was once a vibrant community of young people trying to take control of our futures has slowly but surely declined.

So here is a random and fun fact about Jordyn: I adore Ernest Hemingway; in fact, I once posted a photo of him on my personal Instagram accompanied by the caption Man Crush Monday #bae.

by / ⠀Blog Entrepreneurship / February 17, 2015

When Dollar Shave Club burst on to the scene in 2011, few could have predicted the destructive path they’d pave along the way. After all, they were going up against the likes of Gillette, so what chance did a lowly startup stand?

by / ⠀Blog Startup Advice / February 23, 2012

I really like demonstrating through example’s rather than just saying do X and X and you’ll win. I like providing some background. When you tell someone to do something, 50/50 they’ll do it.
