I write this blog post with mixed feelings.
Both bummed at losing such a great team member… someone who has been at InvestorCarrot since almost the beginning (longer than anyone else on the team currently)… but also excited as heck for my brother for taking the next step in his own career to follow his passions and make big things happen in life.
If you didn’t pick it up already, Kyle Mauch (my younger brother) is doing what most people hope to do in their lives… pursue their dream and build a business around their biggest passions.
The End Of An Era, And Beginning Of A Journey
Kyle joined Carrot (before it was called InvestorCarrot) and has worked in pretty much every role (except programmer) in the company. He was the heart and soul of our awesome Customer Support at the beginning… has helped with marketing… with our affiliate program… and overall picked up the slack when we didn’t have the revenue to add new team members in the beginning.
Kyle definitely took one for the team in the beginning and really grew as a team member and entrepreneur while we worked together.
Also during that time Kyle started a company based on his passions.
The past 2 years he’s been working on a business called Athletes Brand, which is a high end apparel company focused on creating the best off-field apparel for athletes.
It’s been amazing seeing what Kyle has done with Athletes Brand… from an idea of just making t-shirts with clever graphics and quotes on them for sports fans… into having dozens of some of the highest profile athletes in the world wearing his clothes.
From Olympians, All-Star baseball players, top soccer players, musicians, and more.
Heck, he was even featured on a national TV advertising campaign for GoDaddy where I was lucky enough to travel with him to North Carolina where he got to pitch his business idea to Danica Patrick while going around the Charlotte Motor Speedway at 125mph+.
It was a pretty wild experience for all of us (video below)
What’s Next For Kyle?
I’ll be a part of Kyle’s journey from here on out in his journey to grow as an entrepreneur and make a big difference in the lives of people around the world.
But.. up next… he’s tackling a few huge projects with Athletes Brand.
From a new line of clothes… a live music and brew festival here in Oregon in 2015… and a KickStarter campaign to help launch his business and the new line.
Let’s All Wish Kyle Luck And Thank Him For Helping Make InvestorCarrot What It Is Today Below!
Shoot Kyle a quick comment below to encourage him to kick some ass out there in the business world.
