I’ve spent the better part of the last year and a half working on my new SaaS company, YachtClub. What’s exciting about that is the tremendous amount of coding I’ve had to do.
As a computer scientist, I spent the first half of my career as a full-time software engineer for both big companies and startups. In the last half of my career, I’ve been on the business side as either a Chief Technology Officer (CTO) or Chief Product Officer (CPO). Unfortunately, those roles leave little time for serious software development.
Enter YachtClub, and the picture has materially changed. I’ve haven’t gone a single day without spending a few hours authoring software of the last year and a half. I HAVE MISSED THIS.
I am not convinced I’ll suddenly want a full-time job as a software engineer. I love my CTO consulting business, abc & company, and I’m still just as excited about building businesses, people, processes, and culture. For now, I love having a foot firmly in both worlds.
