I got this very sane idea in November of 2011 that I should get out of advertising and start a fishing shop and guiding service for the Provo river. I quit my job as an advertising sales exec at a magazine. I started brainstorming on Christmas eve until 6 in the morning. Writing every idea that flowed through my head regarding what shop I wanted to run. The same process went on for two more nights, going to bed no earlier than 5 am. I had a game plan and now I needed to get some feedback. I went to former co-workers from my days at Sportsman’s Warehouse to get their feedback. They gave me their blessing just as I had predicted. I note, I was willing to not go through with the shop if my former manager Mike Fisher said it was a bad idea. He was pretty positive about my idea. So here we are exactly one month later and the ball is in motion. I have brought on my good friend Zach Emig and fishing partner as a co owner. We will be opening the guiding part of the business this spring ahead of the shop which should open by late this year. The last 24 hours have been crazy, I accidently built a web page (www.simplyfishingutah.com) , 17 hours later! Started my first blog, started a facebook page, started the application process for a business license and started studying SEO. It’s 2:09 am and I’m sure I’ll be up 3 more hours, writing my business plan. Here is my logo courteous of Microsoft paint, took 1 minute to make. Also just set up my online fly shop http://simplyfishing.miiduu.com/
The ones who chase their dreams are those who are not afraid to fail.
