Well Done Apple, Well Done. Reason Why Apple Is A Crave Product

Every now and then you get brands that people crave. The kind of brand that people will wait all day in line for..  what makes these brands that much better than others? They are extremely gifted at showing people the “why” in their products and not the features of what the product can do for you… it builds an emotional connection and people love to stand by something they can feel proud of that stands behind something they believe in themselves.

Meet Kodiak – My New Dog!

Hey everyone, meet Kodiak (a grey/white Husky). A backfired Christmas gift I was going to give (lol) aka blessing in disguise aka my unofficial birthday present; I always wanted a Husky that looked like a wolf. It’s been about a year since I had to put Sasha (11 year old pitbull) down, and this dog came just at the right time.

Can’t wait until he grows big; I’m going to build a dog sulky (pretty much a chariot looking thing) and teach him to pull me around town!

Sold Freelancify… Pursuing My New Passion: FEAST or Famine™ Streetwear Clothing

(Note: I haven’t dropped programming; just sold the site. I still run and maintain another Rails site that is driving traffic to FEAST)

That’s right folks. After having built the site; then getting burned out with programming, taking a hiatus where Freelancify was barely getting maintained; I sold the website.

I sold Freelancify mainly due to the fact that I loved the fire and passion Samuel Adesoga had for Freelancify’s future the first-time he approached me. He is a Rails programmer himself and I know with that drive he has; he will be able to take Freelancify and make it much better and gain some major traction. I wish him the best and years from now; I will be scratching and beating my head about why I sold Freelancify! Here’s the announcement he made on Freelancify’s blog.

I am now pursuing a passion of mine: Designing streetwear clothes. I have been working in the past months building FEAST Clothing company. I am still definitely going to talk about startups and business in this blog.. and also Rails as well (I have since Freelancify built a smaller Rails website/app that is going to help market FEAST or Famine™).

A Stanford Student Asked For My Splash-Page Screenshots, I Gave Him This Instead

Last week, Matt (a current student of Stanford’s Graduate School of Business) emailed me about a presentation workshop he was putting together for class. He asked for screenshots of my old landing splash page that I used to generate 300+ email signups while building my startup app, Freelancify. Since the presentation he was doing was about landing-splash pages in general. I decided to take it a step further and quickly hacked this ‘Hello Stanford’ together for him to use:
