I have been working in the financial services technology space for over 25 years and the past 21 years at a major financial institution. My roles have ranged from technical support analyst, developer, project manager, technical business analyst, and IT manager. The primary focus has been on application development for Customer Relationship Management (CRM) applications both in-house developed and SaaS products.

My first endeavor was establishing a successful vacation rental cabin business in the popular tourist destination known as the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. After 12 years promoting and managing that company, it was time to sell the property, exit business and start a new (yet to be determined) side hustle.

The Pursuit of the Pitch will detail the ideas, learnings, accomplishments, and progress of starting a small business. Hopefully, my discoveries, both positive and negative, will help other entreprenuers in their startup journies. Readers can expect new blog posts on a bi-weekly basis. Thank you for following along in my Pursuit of the Pitch.
