What I’m doing now1

Last updated: October 5th 2019

  Currently, I’m home in Chicagoland after back to back travel all summer. I saw the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge with my wife & kids, visited Toronto to go behind the scenes of commerce at Shopify Unite, and hit Boston to hear what's working at Klaviyo:BOS.

Other upcoming engagements:

  1. Speaking at ShipBob's Sip of Commerce
  2. Travelling to Burbank to see a VIP client
  3. Speaking at Operational Excellence
  4. Racing my POS race car in the 24 hour of Lemons

My current commitments are:

  1. Helping Shopify Plus merchants make more money through my consultancy
  2. Hosting The Unofficial Shopify Podcast.2
  3. Developing Shopify apps based on work with Shopify Plus brands like Leno’s Garage
  4. Providing strategy & support to my wife for her Disney World planning Shopify store.
  5. Providing advisory services to select clients like HOONIGAN.

Time permitting, I will consider:

Unfortunately, I have to pass on:

Getting in touch:

  1. Request a call
  2. Apply to be an Ethercycle client
  3. Request a quote or interview from Kurt
  4. Join our Facebook group and ask your question publicly.
  5. Apply to be an Unofficial Shopify Podcast guest

I know you can figure out my email address easily, but to protect my time I’d prefer if you reached out to my assistant first, or through a warm intro from a mutual acquaintance.

If you send us a message, I promise we’ll read it, but I may need to pass on any offers due to high demand for my time.

1. This is a now page, and if you have your own site, you should make one, too.
2. Have your own podcast? Check out my pro gear guide.
3. In general, I expect to be paid to speak. I will sometimes waive my fee for non-profit, community events if I am the opening keynote. At a minimum I need my return travel and hotel accommodation covered.
4. I have not accepted an app demo offer in the last three years.
