#StartupDayton's Kevin Wimer is going places...literally
Should you really follow your passion or should you follow any venture that makes you money?
This was a question serial entrepreneur Kevin Wimer found himself contemplating not too long ago. He had launched a number of successful businesses, including Jamplay--a company whose online guitar tutorials have helped people across the globe learn to pick a six string--but with every new venture he seemed to always hit a wall of dissatisfaction that left him bored with the project and ready to move on.
Frustrated with the cycle, Kevin decided to take a different approach when creating his latest startup. In a recent post he published on Medium, he said, "In my teens, I was a professional video gamer. I traveled the world getting paid to play games. It was awesome. My love for gaming laid dormant for a decade but never left me."
With that passion in mind, he launched his latest project in the gaming / eSports space: LootMarket.com. And from the looks of things, Loot Market is taking Kevin places--literally. As this article is being written, Kevin is in the Philippines preparing for the 2016 Manila Majors, which in the DOTA gaming world is a BIG deal.
We can't wait to see where Loot Market takes him next, and we can't help but wonder where can your passion take you?
