#FollowFriday: Tim Jahn

By: Gini Dietrich | October 15, 2010 | 

Tim Jahn is doing some pretty important work through “Beyond the Pedway,” which examines the qualities that drive entrepreneurs. He does all of the interviews via video and professionally edits them so the subject looks even better! I know because I’ve done two videos with him and he manages to take out all of my “uhs” and “ums” and even the surprise visits from The Beast (who can open closed doors – it’s pretty amazing). That’s why today’s #FollowFriday is Tim Jahn.

I first met Tim on Twitter nearly two years ago. He was beginning “Beyond the Pedway” and it was focused solely on Chicago entrepreneurs. We became fast friends because, well, he’s funny (we all know I love a sense of humor), he’s smart, and he’s SUPER easy to work with. Now, I’m sure not only because of his creative entrepreneurial drive, but also because people really like him, he’s moved the business, well, beyond the pedway of Chicago and has managed to capture interviews with some pretty amazing people.

The second video he did with me – a recap of what happened to us during and after the recession – can be found on the Arment Dietrich home page. But you don’t have to take just my word for it. Take the actual words from the entrepreneurs at, crowdSPRING, Foiled Cupcakes, and 37Signals have to say!

Follow Tim on Twitter, take in his videos at Beyond the Pedway, check out his guest post on Spin Sucks, and if you’re ever in need of a programmer, hire him!

      @DannyBrown Thanks Danny! When my wife and kid wonder why my head became so big today, I’ll point them to this post. 😉

    Aw, thanks Gini. 🙂 Really appreciate the kind words and was completely taken off guard when I saw this in my inbox this morning.

    Keep up the amazing work you’re doing with Spin Sucks and Arment Dietrich. Look forward to interviewing you again in the future to share more of your entrepreneurial lessons!
