What It's About

An update from a scavenger hunt hustle that now operates in multiple cities.

Notes from Chris

Episode 1132
Welcome to Throwback Thursday / “Where are they now?” where we take an in-depth look at someone who’s story has evolved considerably since we first featured them. So far in these features we’ve had a New York City musician with a blog teaching jazz that becomes a multiple six-figure business, and a former tech employee who sources satin pillowcases from China and also ends up growing a very significant side hustle turned full-time income.

Today, in our latest feature, we’ll hear from a guy I got to hang out with in Boston a while back. His name is Chris as well, and he’s really interesting because what he’s doing now at the age of 48 is exactly what he wanted to do when he was 10. At that young age, he was attracted to games of all kinds and scavenger hunts in particular.

He now runs a company—started as a side gig, of course—that produces these hunts all across Boston and now other cities in the northeast and Chicago as well if I’m not mistaken. He’s evolved as he’s gone along and he’s still going strong.

But it’s been a while since we featured Chris, so what’s happened since?

What’s happened since?
