That time we hiked across the Grand Canyon

They say there’s a thin line between love and hate. I say there’s also a thin line between crazy and awesome things (moving to San Francisco was one of those).

You may have seen one of those “People are Awesome” video compilations. They show the most incredible feats, from people somersaulting onto skateboards to juggling with hands and feet at the same time.

Last weekend I was fortunate enough to participate in my own kind of “People are Awesome” version. 17 people from California flew to Arizona, rented two houses in Flagstaff, drove to Grand Canyon, finished a 35 km (22mi) hike across the Canyon, swopped cars and drove 200 miles (320 km) back for a party.

On your personal scale, is that crazy or awesome?

Why I’ll never forget my first trip to New York

“Is anyone home?”

“Can you please bring my passport to the airport?”

Two hours before my flight to New York, I was sipping beer in a happy hour when I realized I left my passport at home. Thanks to my lovely housemate Sarah, I boarded the plane.

Second fail in a row. I planned to attend the Raptors vs Knicks game at the Madison Square Garden. After confusing Eastern and Pacific time zones, I booked a return flight during the game and had to book a new one.

Soon I will learn it was all worth it. I landed on the East Coast.

Why I Came to San Francisco

Why I Came to San Francisco business development for startups

San Francisco by www.rantlifestyle.com

I came to San Francisco yesterday morning.

This is probably the riskiest and the most spontaneous thing I’ve ever done (except for jumping out of a helicopter in Australia and out of a metal cabin hanging in 134m height in New Zealand).

Why did I do it? 

Throughout the day I met a guy who was getting ready for his second interview with LinkedIn, a guy who was finishing his internship with a giant graphic design company,  a guy who just had an interview with a new fast-growing startup in Palo Alto,  a guy who built a social events app, a guy who left his team in Brazil to enter the US market and is now closing a $200k investment round, a guy who turned a warehouse into a Startup House (and my temporary home),  a girl that is a personal career coach with thousands of YouTube followers, a guy who won $35k for a third place in a Hackathon a day before, a guy who won $50k in the same Hackathon, a guy who built his business in Hawaii, a guy who is a Brazilian Jujitsu pro, and a bunch of others.

And I haven’t even been to any meetups or parties yet. 

I came to San Francisco because I love tech startups and this is the #1 place in the world to be in.

I came because I’m hungry. I want to help startups grow and grow with startups.

And the biggest growth is happening here.

I have no expectations but I’m open for opportunities.

If you think we should meet or want to intro me to someone, reach out via Julius@nark.us or +1 415 960-8759 and let’s do coffee. Just check out my LinkedIn first.

Oh and yeah. The city is pretty cool, too 😉
