What are the best accomplishments of your life? There are the standard ones: Being the Leader and Best with a degree from Michigan, graduating from law school and business school, starting my own law practice (visit Bachuwalaw.com). There are the travel accomplishments: Bungee jumping in Zambia/Zimbabwe, finding happiness in Bhutan, touring the Salt Flats in Bolivia, among others. And then there are the self-motivated ones: running a marathon (see How Hard Can It Be to Run a Marathon? & Athens Marathon Course Review), writing a book (buy Everyone’s Advice Is Wrong . . . Including Mine ), moving to foreign lands (see Happy New Year from TPOL: The Year & Hindsight Is 2020).
All of those took courage and fortitude to accomplish but none of them compare to the wild ride of starting IQKhameleon, an idea so crazy that it might just work, an idea so crazy that if it fails will still be a great story.
The latest installment of the IQ saga took me to Medellin to see my prototype in person. Over two days, we finalized the design and are almost ready to bring it to market.
While there are so many more steps to go, I have a great sense of accomplishment for getting this far. Who else would hire a Nike designer to design a logo? Who else could effectively communicate the details of an unorthodox idea with a designer whose first language is not English? Who else would go to Colombia to see his vision become a reality? The same guy who moved to Mongolia to make it big.
