Chasing Chrome: A day in the life of a startup CEO in San Francisco

Everyday is different running a startup.

  • A conference call, catching up with a friend, biz dev, getting caught up with legal, discussing strategies and closing deals.
  • I place value on being early to meetings.
  • I love living and working in San Francisco.

I popped out of bed at 6:20am this morning, already realizing my alarm didn’t go off. We had a conference call coming up in 40 minutes with a large prospect.

Paubox runs on network time and I was not going to be late.

I hopped in the shower, skipped ironing my shirt and jumped in an Uber X. The drive from my place in North Beach to our SoMa office was less then 20 minutes and I arrived on time for our 7:00am call.

The rest of the day unfolded much the same way: Using Uber and hustle to get from meeting to meeting fashionably early.

Special shout out to my good friend Davy Chang for the idea to compile this “day in the life of” post.

Enjoy the pics. Aloha from SF!
