Sam Sawhook On Entrepreneurship And The Venture Studio Model

Sam joined the military to pay his way through school at the University of Texas, where he studied Finance and Public Policy. He’s worked with and led crack teams on some of the most difficult and sensitive financial and organizational problems facing the nation at places like the Securities and Exchange Commission, Department of Defense, Treasury Department, Charles Schwab Bank & Trust, Army Futures Command, and Army Working Capital Fund.

When Sam dressed up for career day in elementary school he didn’t dress up as an astronaut – he went as the NASA Administrator.

Taking the lessons learned about work, people and economics, he founded a venture studio in 2022 that has gone from zero employees and a $10,000 check to 50+ people and millions of dollars of portfolio value generated – all with the purpose of setting talented people free through the power of ownership.

About the Author
Seth is a former journalist turned digital marketer. He started his own agency in 2008 at the start of the banking crisis. Great timing, right? In 2010, after being a consumer of podcasts since 2005-ish, Seth ventured into doing his own podcasts. He started with Addicted to social media that eventually morphed into Social Media Addicts. Both of these shows have been of the web for a few years now. Currently, in addition to Goldstein Media, Seth's agency, he hosts two podcasts: Digital Marketing Dive and this one. He also has a weekly newsletter called Marketing Junto. To say he's busy is an understatement, but he enjoys every minute (well for the most part).
