Owen Carver on Education, Zappos and Running for Office


On this week’s episode I chat with Owen Carver, about his campaign, work history and ethics and well as life culture and experiences.

Talking to Owen Carver about growing up in small town Iowa, the benefits to small town life verses big city life. Going off to college and exploring different parts of the west coast and pacific northwest, to decide where I wanted to settle. Choosing San Fransisco California as my destination and starting on my journey with Zappos. Experiencing the “Burning Man” festival and it’s believes, lifestyle and ethics. Moving with Zappos to Las Vegas, Nevada to start the growth adventure of a medium sized business with a call center team of 15 to now over 100. Taking Zappos experience as an employee, building the training team and developing a more complex system, to starting to self teach web development. Deciding to go back to college to stud web design and starting my company while in college to work for myself, with ethics, values and mission similar to Zappos. Creating a company that instills a creative, transparent business motto and work ethic for my business and employees.
Now running for State Assembly in Nevada to make a difference in education, state ethics, business and much more. Bringing new business and a more stable approach to our city, to deal with our growing pains, and bettering our city and resources.
