Update on LiftPort
Wow, it has been a while since I’ve posted. I’ll just give you guys a quick update.
Our primary tasks haven’t changed. They still are: finish the book, build the Technical Advisory Council, and find investors. Michael is manning the phone trying to real in some capital for us. I, on the other hand have been promoted from the role of intern to the role of Research Coordinator.
Before I can start coordinating projects, we have to contract the researchers who are going to work on these projects. Therefore, my main job has been to contract and on-board members of the TAC and build the infrastructure after they have agreed to joining with Michael. This work includes a lot of sending emails, contracts and various forms, back and forth between TAC members and I as we accumulate them.
This is an unbelievable experience for me as I have just finished my undergraduate education and my first real employment after college has turned into me coordinating with Masters and PhD level professionals. In total, we have contracted about 15 TAC members, with hopes that will drastically increase in the weeks to come.
In other news, LiftPort Group finally has an office in a beautiful building in downtown Tacoma that used to be a courthouse. This has been really powerful, mostly in regards to focusing ourselves and our work at a location. Now I go to work in the morning and say things like, “I’m heading to the office!” which has been very fun and a big step in the rebuilding process for LiftPort.
I will try to post more frequently,
