In their guts, both Mark and Tim knew that what they were really passionate about was the idea of starting their own company and leveraging all of their collective years of experience in digital marketing to help other businesses succeed. But they were both unsure if it was time to make that collective leap.
On a Saturday afternoon in the fall of 2012, the two friends were having a phone call together to talk about their futures and they decided it was time to gamble.
Mark, having just started the “dream-job” at the largest marketing conglomerate in the world, and Tim preparing to move to Montana to start his “dream-job”, made a bet.
Tim told Mark, “If you quit your job on Monday, I’ll move to Fort Worth and we’ll started a company together. Deal?” Mark, despite everyone around him (with the exception of his wife, Amy), telling him that he was crazy, quit his job on Monday, and a few weeks later Tim moved to Fort Worth. StubGroup was born!
