    Moments | Will Bott - Meet Up, In a Blink

    Moments | Will Bott - Meet Up, In a Blink

    While at a rowing competition a little over two years ago, Will Bott serendipitously had his light bulb moment. Why wasn't there anything on the market that let you know when your friends or colleagues are around so that you can meet up in real life? Too often, thought Will, we miss opportunities to have a good time with others simply because we don't know they're close by. 
    So started the journey to launch bLinkup - an app that allows you to discover who you know in your area, giving you the opportunity to meet up...in a blink. In this episode of Moments by Journeymen, Will explains how the decision to start and operate a startup has impacted his life and shares some pointed wisdom along the way.
    bLinkup is currently available on the App Store! Give it a try!

    Dwayne Marks - Network Effects (Pt. 2)

    Dwayne Marks - Network Effects (Pt. 2)

    Resilient. Remarkable. Rare. These are just some of the words that are top of mind when describing the life of Dwayne Marks. His life has been a winding road, so full of experiences that we couldn't possibly squeeze it all into one episode - hence, we split his journey into two parts. This is his story.
    ---
    In Part 2, as Dwayne matures, his focus and passion move from cloudy to clear. With the support of his network of friends, family, colleagues, and mentors, he begins to confidently explore his interests and acquire tools that will build a fulfilling, successful career. Combining his love for bringing people and families together with a seemingly unrelated penchant for numbers and data, Dwayne is working every day to find unique, perhaps unexplored methods to uplift Milwaukee person by person, family by family at SaintA. When asked what has been paramount to shaping his life into what it is today, Dwayne cites two things: wisdom gained through education and the individuals he allowed to impact his life.

    Dwayne Marks - Network Effects (Pt. 1)

    Resilient. Remarkable. Rare. These are just some of the words that are top of mind when describing the life of Dwayne Marks. His life has been a winding road, so full of experiences that we couldn't possibly squeeze it all into one episode - hence, we split his journey into two parts. This is his story.

    In Part 1, we get to know Dwayne. His upbringing, his motivations, his interests, his defining moments. Growing up in East Chicago, Indiana, life wasn't easy. Yet, through the highs and lows, Dwayne was constantly supported - until he wasn't. Rapidly uprooting one's childhood can have that effect. Depending on with whom he surrounded himself in his impressionable years, Dwayne seemed to flip flop from good situations to bad situations, ebbing and flowing between a man of great promise and a kid without a clear direction. Yet, as he explains, certain seminal moments (and people) helped keep him on the right path as he made his way into young adulthood.

    Moments | Rick Carlson - Recession of '09

    Moments - Journeymen's ongoing series of digestible episodes highlighting the events that define our lives. Like many, Rick Carlson lost his job as a result of the 2008-2009 recession. However, his approach to his newfound circumstances was rather unique and remarkably powerful. Through thick and thin, Rick understands the importance of always keeping one eye forward, always considering what's next. A strong mindset coupled with the willingness to put 'we' over 'me' helped Rick not only get through this challenging time, but growth through it. This is his moment.

    Henry Lynch - Just Go For It

    Henry Lynch - Just Go For It

    Making a change is difficult. It's anxiety-inducing, stressful, and full of uncertainty. Yet, more often than not, as Henry Lynch has long understood, it is necessary. We must have the courage to take control of our situation, and improve it when the opportunity arises to do so. Henry embodies these truths - changing his focus of study at the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse not once, not twice, but FOUR times, as well as his career path, all before the age of 26. To some, such an approach may appear unfocused, but, to Henry, it's all an effort in finding his purpose, finding his fit. There is simply no appeal to accepting a disjointed, unfulfilling life. Fortunate to have strong support system by his side, Henry will never lack the bravery to do what feels right, even if that means making big changes. He will always go for it. This is his story.
