I’m Corbett Barr, a blogger, podcaster, independent entrepreneur and halfway decent software developer. My home base is currently San Francisco, but I spend winters in Mexico and travel throughout the year.

Current Projects

  • FizzleLearn how to build a small independent business online. Build something that matters along thousands of entrepreneurs in the Fizzle community.
  • The Fizzle ShowThe podcast where Chase Reeves, Barrett Brooks and I joke around and get down to business.
  • The SparklineI’ve been blogging since early 2009. Most of my best writing ended up here in the archives.
