Hello from Salt Lake

Hi Everyone. Just wanted to jump in here to introduce myself. I’ve recently accepted an offer as CEO of Full30. I’m excited about the future and I’m glad to be part of it.

I’ve been a content creator on Full30 since the beginning with the channel Student of the Gun. My dad, Paul Markel (The Pimphand of America), started the business and I setup the digital infrastructure. It’s a family run business. My mother, Nancy (The Queenpin) runs customer service, my brother (The Shipping Ogre) manages the store and shipping/fulfillment. My wife, Alexandria (The Digital Mistress), helps with graphic design and video. Please jump over and subscribe to SOTG.

I’ve worked with several companies in the industry through my marketing/consulting company, Mastermind Media and Consulting Group. I’ve learned a TON about scalable business from running that company.

We are taking Full30 in a unique direction. We are moving to a model that prioritizes the success of the content creators. We are working to provide the tools the creators need to create their own business or side gig through producing content, etc. There are big plans in the future and I’ve been made aware of the lack of follow through on previous promises so we will be delivering some of the features before we publish a roadmap.

We’ve made some amazing headway in these first couple months since I’ve joined the company. Here’s a link to the latest development blog. Please take a moment to thank the entire dev team, @Robert, and @JoshActual for their commitment to Full30. Without them, it wouldn’t have been possible.

I won’t be able to jump on here often. If you have any questions or just want to chat, please send me an email to jarrad@full30.com.

Thank you all for investing your time and effort here in the forum. We appreciate it.

Sincerely,
Jarrad

You have my attention. I hope that the direction you’re eluding to is in the best interest of promoting firearms becoming more mainstream.

Of course. 1a protects 2a. I spoke with Mark Walters on Armed American Radio about this. Give the episode a listen if you have time.

Man… anyone else think @Jarrad_Markel showing up when we have so much trolling going on is coincidence?

Welcome!
Great to have you steering the ship!
And @Robert is an excellent guy to have working with you (along with the other mysterious henchman behind the scenes :sunglasses:)
The attention and effort they make to keep this forum running the way it is…is the reason this forum is the best on the internet in my opinion.

That thanks go’s to the community at large and certainly @LonewolfMcQuade who is an avid troll hunter (and groundhogs)

Once I catch up for the day I’ll be changing the trust level for new sign ups, then when they get a “spam” flag from any user they will be silenced.

Assuming you are the real Jarrad Merkel then welcome, big fan of your dad’s books. Hope you bring the same knowledge and perspective to the community that he does. :+1:
