Seven years ago, I bought the domain name ProjectSpurs.com. Little did I know the journey that would take me on. A few weeks before that, my partner at the time and I had worked on building a Spurs website. It was supposed to serve as a San Antonio Spurs fansite with information, graphics and some news on the team we both loved.
My partner had named it Project Spurs Entertainment, which I was never a big fan of, so when I bought the name, I decided to drop the "entertainment" off the name and go ahead with Project Spurs.
Shortly after, my partner got busy with school and I took over full ownership and responsibility. At that time, I had a goal for Project Spurs, and seven years later, I can honestly say that Project Spurs has exceeded every expectation.
About 10 months in, I met Jeff Garcia, who is now my best friend and co-founder. Jeff answered a Craigslist listing for writers, submitted a post and I asked him if he was interested in guest hosting on the Spurscast, which was still in its infancy. Jeff and I recently recorded our 254th episode of the Spurscast and also celebrated our sixth year of doing the show.
I talked about goals and expectations earlier, and Jeff has been an integral part of meeting and exceeding our expectations. Without question, Jeff believed in my vision, aligned his goals with mine and together we've had a chance to do some great things. I'm extremely proud to have him in my corner and even prouder of his growth as a writer and leader.
