Derek Timm graduated college with a degree in business. After college, he took a job as a paper pusher (his words) and was able to transition into a product designer/CAD position. He found his passion in design and his experience and expertise has grown since. He even started his own side business.
We discuss Derek’s path so far, some projects we have done together, and where he is headed with his new company.
1. Don’t get caught up in your degree or what you are currently doing now. If there is another field or area of work you want to try, you need to go for it. You might just find it is exactly what you want to do
2. Consider taking an equity stake in your project if you think it is a good idea. This makes it easier than hustling for jobs constantly
