The Journey From Traveling Poet to Online Entrepreneur

he-josh-parkinson

Today’s guest on Hack the Entrepreneur is a poet turned tech junkie and entrepreneur.

After receiving a graduate degree in literature in 2000, he headed for Europe, where he sang rhymes to crowds for five years before moving to Arabia to teach Shakespeare to American troops.

His interest in tech was sparked while working for a VC firm in Utah. His due diligence work there taught him one thing: he wanted to be the startup, not the investor.

He got that chance in 2011 when he launched Post Planner. From there, he and his co-founder grew Post Planner from a simple scheduler into a powerhouse content curation and social publishing platform.
