he tech industry.

So much to love about it. So much to....not love about it.

Today's guest Taylor Wallace spent a decade in the startup trenches, and, like 99.999% of his compatriots, did NOT become a billionaire.

By the time COVID hit, Taylor was over tech.

And now, he and a partner have acquired 2 doggy daycares in Tampa and have much more planned.

You're going to hear all about that in this interview.

And Taylor and I also spend quite a bit of time on how it feels to go from tech to small business.

They are such different animals.

Tech is sexy and promises riches — but for many, many people, is ultimately empty.

Meanwhile, owning a small business...

You already know that sexy, it ain't! But impactful, dynamic, and human it is.

Not to mention, a much more likely path to riches.

Such a fun conversation with Taylor Wallace of Paws 'n' Rec doggy daycares. Enjoy.
