“I don’t have a steady personality”
This is what Chris Smith, founder of Area360, had to say about becoming an entrepreneur at 21, and now running a highly successful software development company. He was not necessarily studious, nor ambitious; rather, he enjoyed partying and socialising in his high school and college days. One day, he realised how tedious and painful the online ticketing service for his student organisation was – so he started his own software company based in Seattle. Okay, I’ve left a lot of things from his story, like the years of hard work and roadblocks. However, the one thing that really stood out from all the presenters at the Creative3 Forum was their sheer passion for the problem they were trying to solve.
