Meet Brant Elliot, co-founder of Stealz! Brant recently switched into the startup world. Find out the strangest thing in his refrigerator right now below.
1) If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?
- The ability to rewind time. I would love to see how our universe started, grew, and evolved over time.
2) If you were running for office, what would your campaign slogan be?
- I can't imagine myself running for office. Not my style.
3) If you could travel to any point in time, where would you go and why?
- 4th/5th Century when they were deciding on which books would be authoritative for the New Testament. I would have loved to be a fly-on-the-wall for those discussions.
4) What is the strangest thing in your refrigerator right now?
- My homemade chili-garlic sauce made from my own ghost peppers
5) Who was your biggest role model as a child?
- Frank Thomas. He used his football scholarship at Auburn to get on the baseball team (his ultimate passion) and eventually become a Hall of Fame MLB player.
6) Here at HQ, one of our Core Values is "Be Authentic." What do you do on a day-to-day basis to live out that value?
- I love growing my own vegetables and cooking w/ them. A green thumb was something I picked up after I graduated college and each spring I set aside two or three weekends to prepare and plant the garden. After a long day at the office, there’s nothing more relaxing than walking into your garden and picking out dinner.
7) What piece of advice would you give to budding entrepreneurs?
- Be in the office on the weekends. Not only does it give you an opportunity to be productive when others aren’t.. but it also shows your dedication to the vision.
8) What do you enjoy most about what you do?
- No two days are alike. I laugh when people ask, “Tell me what your typical day looks like.” I usually just respond with “controlled chaos” but I wouldn’t change it for anything else.
9) If you could be anything other than an entrepreneur, what would you be?
- A research engineer for renewable sources of energy.
10) When did you last sing to yourself? To someone else?
- A Phish song during their last live stream. Other people heard me and laughed that I knew the lyrics.
