Every day, advancements in society, sparked by the struggles of deteriorating systems, send us towards an impending age of exponential growth.
The opportunities on the horizon are enormous, and those willing to challenge crumbling paradigms will be rewarded greatly.
In 2020, Nate O, at the time a snowboard instructor in Breckenridge, dreamed of being an author, owning a house in the mountains, and exploring the snowy ranges from dawn till dusk.
Then suddenly, The Pandemic sent him back to his New Mexico. Though he was confident in his skills as strategic communicator (having worked as a door-to-door Solar salesman, edited crucial case documents for a boutique trust/estate attorney, and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a creative and technical writing degree from UNM), he didn’t know the first thing about running a business.
Luckily, he found mentors. Like his father, Bradley Odegard, a CPA, JD, and long time CFO at one of the largest Santa Fe Corporations. Ralph Vildosola, champion of multi-stream income architecture, OG digital business man with two decades of online marketing and sales system experience, and partial owner of The Legacy Movie division of the Think And Grow Rich team. And they taught him the path to profitability.
Devouring as much information about marketing, sales, and execution as he possibly could was top priority. Of course, he created time for the fun stuff – design, innovation, ideation too. Honed his art working as the Director of Content and led an expansion into Denver for an Austin based marketing agency.
~50% of businesses fail in year one. 80% by year 5. And by year 10 only 4% of all businesses ever started stay standing. Of them, less than 5% ever make $1million. Chances of survival are slim for a business. It’s a cold world out there. He knew that, especially going into such a competitive marketplace.
His goal was freedom, a force that motivated him for as long as he could remember. A burning desire to live a life rich with experience, unchained by the burdens of financial ceilings or personal regrets. Empowered by some luck in the stock/crypto markets, he invested all his time/money into building his business.
So, on 1/1/22, Nate founded O&Co, a marketing consultancy for the next generation. The mission? Equip fellow entrepreneurs with everything they need to make more impact and profit in the ever changing marketplace. The vision? Bring back the art of business, and play a big part in the epic unfolding of the exponential age.
Though industries vary, intentions are the same – O&Co clients want to build a better tomorrow, be their very best at what they do, & enjoy the ride. They like to read and tend to have a sense of humor.
At O&Co, we’re tremendously grateful to serve such a powerful community of entrepreneurs and artists. Want to see what some of our collaborators say?
