The story of how First Page came about — and grew — is a story of the power of content.

After more than a decade of working in content marketing, I realized where my career had taken me wasn't serving my personal story of growth or happiness any longer. I made a snap decision to start First Page, leave my career in San Francisco, and work remotely as an expat entrepreneur in Belize.

I wrote about how this decision on Medium in a post titled, "I’m Leaving My 6-Figure San Francisco Startup Career to Sell Ice Cream on a Beach."

This post was shared 2.2K times on social media and recommended 559 times on Medium. Because of one Medium post with a catchy title, an editor at Fast Company — one of the most-read business and entrepreneur publications in the U.S. — emailed me. He had read my story on Medium and asked me to share my story with Fast Company readers.
