Today is a very proud day for me. BYU Soccer has began using Scan to sell tickets and season passes. It makes me so happy to see 2 things that I’ve worked so hard on, come together in a beautiful way. Here’s the link if you’d like to Continue reading
When building a product, one of the first things you should ask yourself is whether this is something you would use. That way, at the very least you’ll have 1 user. And if things go really well, 3 years later you’ll have over 50 million ; )
It was about 3 yrs ago when I Continue reading
THE WORTH OF AN IDEA
Are you the type of person who thinks the idea is the most important part of a business and that it should be kept a sacred secret for the world to never see? Or are you the type that understands that execution is far more important and without it, any idea will tragically expire?

The day before Scan appeared on the TV show, Shark Tank, I had the fun opportunity to be on the local news together with my co-founders Ben Turley and Kirk Ouimet.

Below are two commercials that have recently been playing on tv. Both from “similar” companies, yet these advertisements couldn’t feel any more different.
In my personal opinion, one ad celebrates and captures life, while the other attempts to become your life (all you talk about and do). Well I think I’ll just leave it at that. I won’t even say which is which.
