THE (WAY)BACK STORY
I’ve been an entrepreneur all my life. In fact, I started three businesses before I was 13 years old.
In my previous life I was a national sales trainer and revenue manager for a Fortune 100 company. Translation: I was on the road 3 weeks a month in an ultra-corporate environment that sucked mainly because I wasn’t allowed to wear flip flops to work. (I really love flip flops)
I left the corporate gig in 1998 and after brief stints at a few companies to learn my new craft (real estate funding), I opened my own mortgage company in 2000.
I’M AN ENTREPRENEUR!
For 8 years things went great. We were the #1 mortgage company in Denver specializing in residential, commercial and private funding specifically for real estate investors.
Two awesome things happened during those 8 years: 1) I became an expert in raising capital and 2) I wrote a book.
I also participated in more than 600 real estate transactions and created a private equity mortgage hedge fund raising $26.2 million dollars but that’s a story for another day.
So, 2008 comes around and the bottom drops out of the mortgage market. Financial crises abounded and I realize very quickly that my mortgage company was not going to survive.
But there was a total silver lining in that cloud.
In 2009 I opened an i-commerce company, Lassiter Marketing Group.
I-commerce is e-commerce with a twist in that we market digital information (instead of widgets) by monetizing our intellectual capital as part of the $531 billion knowledge market.
And that’s just a fancy way of saying we sell information online.
But it’s more than just information.
We sell transformation and produce lasting, PROFITABLE outcomes for our more than 9,000 customers and 45,000 subscribers worldwide.
