It is with great excitement that I/we announce the launch of our new show,”Ask Jay“, featuring none other than the chairman and founder of Revision3, Jay Adelson. Twice weekly episodes of Ask Jay will include tips, advice, and real life stories from the trenches for aspiring entrepreneurs.
I met Jay Adelson about 7 years ago. Me a small time (albeit ambitious) niche cable television producer, Jay a seasoned and experienced business man. Both of us were geeks with passions for things like modding X-boxes, building home brew computers, and attending space shuttle launches.
Our paths first crossed when the old TechTV show The Screen Savers did a segment about the inner workings of data centers and put its focus on Jay Adelson, then the founder and CTO of Equinix.
Fast forward to today, and Revision3 would certainly not exist if not for Jay’s leadership. He also instilled in me the entrepreneurial spirit in taking an idea, shaping it into something I believed in and taking the calculated, exciting risk of quitting my job to start and run a company.
Along the way, I’ve probably amassed more than an MBA’s worth of knowledge about everything from raising money, hiring a team and promoting your business, to trademarking, managing stock options, economic modeling, forecasting (and then some).
Jay is as genuine as they get when bestowing legitimate, honest business advice, and is one of the most approachable, fun, and engaging people I know. We’re thrilled to be launching this new series on Revison3 as a platform for him to lend his wealth of knowledge to all those seeking advice on how to follow their dreams.
