From the Desk ofSteven Werley
I am a father, husband, brother, son, former Army Ranger, marketer, and entrepreneur searching for purpose, hope, and growth. There is no singular theme to everything within. Some things will be geared more toward business owners and marketing executives, and others toward people like me trying to discover what they should be doing.
Writing is a form of therapy. I am not doing this to attain celebrity status, a book deal, or any intention other than hoping it provides an outlet for my thoughts. If those thoughts help others along the way, it is a well-received side effect.
The sharing of knowledge is something I always thought humans of as being rather primitive. Wisdom and knowledge go around, but we fail to prepare our children for what comes in life. It’s not due to a lack of experience by humanity but an inability to prioritize the lessons we share as parents, teachers, business leaders, scientists, doctors, and, dare I say, politicians.
I believe in transparency. If you’re here to find some hidden trick to become a millionaire overnight, a respected and loved leader, the best parent in the world, or the meaning of life, you will likely leave with a feeling of emptiness. At least at the time of writing this I am not a world-renowned expert in anything, including parenting and business, and I’m somewhat lost overall about what I should be doing.
As I stated when I started this, growth is one of the goals. I hope that growth is achieved by documenting my knowledge, goals, and learnings. If there is one thing to push the needle forward, it’s to learn something daily and weave love into how we interact with others. One of the most well-documented learnings is that simple acts of kindness can create tidal-wave chains of events rippling through the lives of many others.
So with a smile, a pinch of hope, and an open mind, I want to say welcome to my life.

Startup Grind breeds entrepreneurship in over 200 cities across the globe. It is the largest independent startup community, which is awesome. If you have anything to do with entrepreneurship, you should get involved with Startup Grind one way or another.
There are events monthly for each chapter that generally run from 6-9PM and involve the same format. The first hour involved networking, food, and alcohol (where would we be without it). The second involves an established entrepreneur sitting down with the city’s chapter director and doing a fireside chat, which is essentially an interview. This provides education for young entrepreneurs and mentorship. The last hour sustains the networking from the first hour and builds upon that following up the fireside chat.
