I’ve been making a few more startup investments lately, but this summer I made one that I never could have predicted: a town. Back in July my friend Ryan Holiday mentioned an investment opportunity he was getting involved with: an old mining town in California.

The last few weeks have been really fun. I’ve been traveling (one of my favorite things to do) around Europe and meeting up with really smart, driven people. It started with a trip to London to teach a workshop (which you’ll hear more about in a second) with Brennan Dunn. Then after the workshop we […]One Year After Quitting My Job
