Every cap table needs a cowgirl
When I got engaged, it was long understood that my dad wasn’t going to write a check for a wedding. To my surprise instead, he gave me five cows and told me to do whatever I chose with them. I immediately enrolled in ranch management and marketing classes to optimize the opportunity. I crafted my entire nuptial plan around the impact of the global stock market- breeding and selling at strategic intervals and analyzing the impact of international markets on local beef pricing. And boy, did I get a heck of a return.
I've spent the last 10 years as a founder, investing in big dreams and brighter futures around the world through the platform I built and scaled. Today, I am eager to invest in dreams in a new capacity. From cows as capital to hacking together a sustainable system that has served thousands of children around the globe, I thrive outside the box.
