Failed Actor to Fintech Founder.

On a Friday morning in March, espresso in hand, I casually sketched out a creative concept for an independent banking platform.

Ten minutes later I called my 'Swedish Jesus' Robert Andersson... "I think I found something".

Christopher S. Sellers, failed actor to fintech founder.

Within two months we'd created a pitch-deck, a one sheet, a landing page and a three year financial plan.

The following month Robert was on his way to Sweden, pitching to two Swedish investors for $10 million. All they had seen was the 60 second investor video I had produced.

Robert met both investors, the meetings went well, they asked for the pitch deck and Robert returned home to Melbourne.

Last Saturday, Investor no.1 contacted us... "We're in, I just need to see the business plan".

That same day, Investor no.2 contacted us... "If I wanted to share the cost with some friends, would that be ok? We just need to see the business plan".

So now Robert and I are finalising the business plan and this is where I say... "watch this space".

This is where my Co-Host Broedy Ipox says... 'build in public'... (he's turning this journey into a Professional Misfits documentary).

This is where I remind people that I wrote the book on how creativity designs disruption... before I creatively designed the disruption - you can read it here.

And this is where I encourage you.

Call your shot... do the work... build your relationships.

What others will call 'luck', you will know were opportunities earned.
