About Sam Parr and The Anti-MBA

Hey all,

I’m Sam. This is my personal blog. While I run a popular content startup, this blog is just my hobby where I write about my favorite books, finance and also host my book club.

And if you want to learn more then read below.

Name: Sam Parr
LinkedIn: http://www.linkedin.com/pub/sam-parr/54/659/964

  • I was born and raised in St. Louis, MO and went to high school at SLUH.
  • After that, I moved to Nashville to go to Belmont University TN on a D1 track scholarship (200m and 400m).
  • While in school I worked for a tv show American Pickers.
  • I started my first real business after leaving American Pickers. I was a junior in college and it a chain of hot dog stands called Southern Sam’s: Wiener’s as Big as a Baby’s Arm.
  • Also started an online liquor store during my senior year. Those two businesses paid my way.
  • Wanting to start an internet company, I left college and moved to San Francisco.
  • While apartment hunting, I met a guy named John Havel. He had been working on his roommate matching startup, Bunk. I asked to join him as a co-founder. He said yes.
  • After ten months, Bunk was acquired and I worked for 1 year for the acquirer.
  • Searching for my next big idea, I start Hustle Con, a TED-like conference for entrepreneurs.
  • Unexpectedly, Hustle Con gets very popular because of the newsletter I made to promote it.
  • After traveling the country on a motorbike, I decided to turn Hustle Con into a media company, and thus The Hustle, now one of America’s fastest growing media startups, was born.
  • All the while, I blog on The Anti-MBA.

And that, my friend, is where we are now.

A few more notes:

  • I get a lot of cold emails because people want to be written about in The Hustle and it stresses me out, so often I just don’t respond. Don’t be offended.
  • If you really want to reach me, message me on Facebook.
  • This blog uses Amazon Affiliates.

OK, that’s all for now.
