Interview with Sam Moretti of Techs
Jun 11 2019 25 mins  
 On Time for Success - Business Owner Dads Edition This week we are interviewing Sam Moretti with Techs. Get to know Sam: 36 year old single father of one 5 year old boy. I graduated 2006 from Washington University in St Louis with a degrees in Economics and Finance. Worked in corporate financial systems auditing and IT systems auditing and remediation before starting an IT company that failed, then one that hasn't failed yet. I'm pretty uncomplicated. Just live honestly and with conviction and we'll get along. A master of self-deprecating humor. I have a lot of material to work with. My hobbies and interests include spending time with friends and family and discuss how awesome and terrible life is, and building business. I've been known to watch a show or two, the good ones. I love NOT playing sports since I suck at coordination. Thanks, brain. But my dainty fingers are perfect for typing on a keyboard. At least I found my niche! Eat, drink and be merry! Why does everyone say they are a lover of food in dating sites on their bios? I mean, is there anyone who actually says, gosh, I really hate that I have to eat delicious food when I'm hungry. If there was, I don't know if I'd believe they weren't an alien or something. Gotta wrap this up, getting a little long winded. I like the Kingsman definition of nobility which I now learned is actually Ernest Hemingway (I need to read more): “There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.”
