In January of 2015, my wife and I embarked on the journey of a lifetime. We sold all of our possessions, kissed our son, family, and friends goodbye, and took off for parts unknown. Now, we're living the digital nomad lifestyle as we travel the world!
"So... what do you do, Evo?"
Most people have no idea what it is that I do. That's OK. I have a tough time explaning it. "Digital strategist" is the closest title that matches, but it's pretty vague. I'd call myself a business coach, but I abhor the connotations. Think of me as a record producer, where the businesses I work for are the band, and the "record" is a new way of doing business. My job is to pull together whatever it takes to make sure it's a smash hit. (I'm stretching the metaphor, aren't I?)
These days, I'm sharing my personal experience and travels as we traipse the globe. The detritus from that is scattered about my social properties, but it's mostly summed up over at ShEvo.wtf, where you can subscribe to the newsletter, podcast, and/or blog to keep up with the fun.
But this is called about.me, so I should get to that:
I've never met a problem I didn't want to solve. Somehow, I managed to build a career out of doing just that. Some fun facts to give you a taste of me:
I embraced the web when it was young, dragging a multi-billion dollar company along kicking and screaming all the way.
I'm among the first dozens of podcasters, and now there are millions.
I'm an early adopter and vocal advocate of building businesses around the concept of "free".
I'm the author of 2.5 books in the "for Dummies" series and continue to indie publish non-fiction books.
Yes, I really did survive (and thrive) on a month-long regiment of craft beer and sausage as my only calorie source.
I've founded five different startups. Three in the publishing space, one in finance [shudder], and one in media.
If you'd like to have me speak at your conference or event; great! I have experience with all sorts of public speaking, from keynotes to workshops.
