For this episode of TrepStarz we were joined by David Sawyer, CEO and Founder of The Story of Life, also known as TSO Life. TSO Life is an online tool that allows you to document the story of your life or a loved one through text, stories, pictures, videos and/or voice clips. David’s inspiration to start TSO Life came from the passing of his grandmother in late 2013. He realized a lot of family history and stories were lost with her passing. He began to wonder what it would have been like to capture her voice and to hear her share some of her personal memories. After her death, the grandkids were sharing stories back and forth on Facebook and that’s when the light bulb went off. David has done an excellent job raising money and putting together a solid team, but it didn't come easy. David shares some great advice and lessons learned on raising capital and building a good team. We talk about the romanticism of entrepreneurship and what can and can't be taught. This episode is chalk full of advice for new entrepreneurs. Tune in and be inspired!
