Massively amateur software dabblerI am not a software developer, but did teach
Pascal to my neighbors in elementary school.
Spoiler: that is my computer in the picture, but I'm not actively using it. I run a full Bitcoin node on a dusted-off 12-year-old laptop. Because that's what keeps Bitcoin decentralized.
Bitcoin is pretty amazing .
Here's a list of more proper dabbling...
Like this one!
WordPress, Bootstrap, HTML, CSS, DNS, CDN, hosting, and some copy-and-pasted JS and PHP.
I've developed and maintained numerous client sites. Security, scalability, content, design, and more.

Marrying data sources + compute gems = stealth high-tech.
Microsoft Power Automate is currently my favorite playground and reliably makes me look savvier than I am.

Stats are my jam. ML is next level. BigML is where I thrive.
Alright, this is not so amateur...my production-quality models predict Bitcoin market manipulation. These models drive millions in monthly trading volume.
From amazing people.
Extraordinary advice, with a dash of wonderful corniness
Verified Book Purchase
"If you're looking for a success guide that isn't afraid to be bold, and take some fresh new approaches to personal fulfillment, then you owe it to yourself to give this book a try. And as a side note - the author is still active, and stands behind his work. He didn't just write this, and disappear. I went to his site and got an email from him soon thereafter. Justin's the real deal."
Principal at Whitehaven Capital
"Justin Gesso is the secret sauce behind a lot of successful people, me included."
Bestselling Author, MBA, TEDx Speaker
"Breaking out of the traditional employment pattern is a dream for many people. Justin's first book provided inspiration and fuel for my personal journey. I dare you to pick up this book and not take action on the side hustle or small business of your dreams."
CISO at PTC
"Move over Tim Ferriss, there's a refreshed approach to unshackling yourself from the grueling busy-work of the grind."
Better than any other "start a business" book you'll read

"I purchased the Kindle and audiobook version of The Book on Small Business Ideas. I found it to be easy, strait-forward and engaging. The reader for the audiobook does a fantastic job too. If I'm ever having a day where I'm not feeling motivated to pursue my own business goals, I listen to this book on the way to work, and it gets me motivated to work harder and smarter than ever before. Even months into reading and listening to it I can still jump-start my motivation - that alone is worth the price to me."
Valuable combination of aptitude and attitude
"I had the privilege of working closely with Justin on multiple challenging projects at Avaya. Not only is he focused, technically competent, and experienced, he shows a great deal of open-mindedness and flexibility. Justin has the very unique and valuable combination of Aptitude and Attitude that is too rare in the corporate world. If there is a challenging project that is meaningful to the company and Justin is involved, I want in on that project. I can confidently and sincerely say that Justin is among the top 5 peers I have ever worked with."
A life changing read that you need.

"A most amazing second book by Justin Gesso. His first book blew my mind, this second book "Small Business Ideas" has raised the bar so much. Not only does it provide motivation like the first book, there are so many ideas and actionable steps. If you're tired of just getting by, If there is too much month at the end of your money, If you want to start a side business or even a primary business that will help you prosper, then DO NOT HESITATE, buy this book right now! In fact, if you haven't already read "Leave The Grind Behind" do yourself a favor and go ahead and purchase them both. You will not regret it."
My experience with Justin was beyond what I ever considered a Realtor would do for me.
"Buying one house is a huge deal, let alone two, not to mention from another state, and Justin really made the whole process super easy. To this day, more than two years later, Justin keeps in touch with me and his advice has been invaluable. I highly, highly recommend Justin Gesso to anyone I know looking to buy or sell a home in Colorado."
Thank you so much for reading this far.
