The Journey From Travelling Poet to Online Entrepreneur

Joshua Parkinson on Hack The Entrepreneur May 28th 2015


My guest today is a poet turned tech junkie and entrepreneur. After receiving a graduate degree in literature in 2000, my guest headed for Europe, where he sang rhymes to crowds for 5 years before moving to Arabia to teach Shakespeare to American troops.

His interest in tech was sparked while working for a VC firm in Utah. His due diligence work there taught him one thing: he wanted to be the startup, not the investor. He got that chance in 2011 when he launched Post Planner. From there my guest and his co-founder grew Post Planner from a simple scheduler into a powerhouse content curation and social publishing platform.

Now, let's hack...
