In his 13+ years of experience, Mr. Hodges has accomplished the following before the age of 30: co-founded and worked on three successful technology ventures with one successful exit, advised & invested in other startups, worked in B2B sales, built brands from the ground up, grown brands to the next level, increased customer retention and loyalty, promoted on all social media platforms, and launched multimillion dollar products both online and in retail.  He likes to say that he “generally executes on his best big ideas instead of throwing tons of ideas out there with no execution.”
