Hello, to those that always need to find out more.
I'm David and this is my personal blog, it contains my free form thoughts on subjects I am interested in, such as technology, books, podcasts, sports, psychology, pretty much anything. All opinions are my own, unless they get me into trouble in which case, they are someone else's.
I also run a company in the UK called Total Car Check, and I've learned a lot of lessons in doing so. I share a lot of those lessons here.
Want to know more, sure, read on...
Name: David James
- I grew up in Essex, England.
- I went to university in London, England.
- My first job out of university was for a telecoms company on a "High Potential Graduate Scheme", there were something like 25 of us that started together, I think there are 2 remaining 'graduates' with the same company 17 years later.
- I tried, and failed to launch my first company whilst at this telco, called "Simple Web Phone". (I just googled simplewebphone and found my old blog, so I imported all of the old blog posts, wow, I was..... young.)
- Worked in insurance, banking, air travel, then when my parents bought a stolen car.. by accident... I started to build https//totalcarcheck.co.uk in evenings and weekends.
- Why is this blog called the "antistartup"? Good question, long rambling answer that includes.... what a startup is and isn't is ethereal, any path that leads to happiness and kindness is the right path, don't let people convince you otherwise.
