David,

First of all, thank you for taking time to read my article. I really do appreciate it!

Second, thank you even more for sharing your personal experience. That is exactly why I wrote and published this article in the first place. I want to start (and continue) the conversation of pursuing ideas by connecting them with others. It took a lot of vulnerability to share and it really does mean a lot.

I can relate in terms of initially feeling like time has been wasted. I’m 27 and feel like I should have started this back in college. I think that’s the nature of realizing your potential. There is always a small amount of regret that it didn’t happen sooner.

At this point, all that matters is that both you and I have made the conscious decision to finally devote the time, effort, and energy into these endeavors.

I would love to hear more about Vertical Learning Labs, and I would definitely love to share more about Metamo (my new company) and Collide, the first offering (an iOS app that connects people with ideas using complimentary skills and their location). Feel free to sign up for the early beta once it’s released: http://www.collideapp.com/

Looking forward to keeping in touch!

I’m a designer and writer who enjoys making people smile. https://www.billyfrazier.is/
