Scott Adams is comfortable going out on a limb. One day, 30 years ago, on a whim, he decided to take up cartooning because he was unhappy with his job working in the budget and financial analysis department of Pacific Bell, a phone company. Today, he’s best known as the creator of Dilbert, one of the most recognizable comic strips, which is published online and in 2,000 newspapers in 57 countries. But, that’s just one of the things Adams has been up to in the last 30 years.
He’s written a few books, including one on how he’s gotten to where he is, called How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big. He invested in the restaurant business. And he even dipped his toe into blockchain with his most recent project, WhenHub, a platform with products to serve freelancers and contractors. It offers services like a software that builds shareable visual calendars and schedules, and a video chat function that can be used to connect consultants with their clients. Payments can be made in fiat currencies or crypto.
