How I went from no degree “tech guy” to helping thousands of online entrepreneurs build a life and business they love.
Before Total Podcasting, before People In Tech, before blogging, podcasting, teaching, I was like most of my followers. A corporate worker.
Continually focusing on climbing the ladder. Looking for the next promotion, raise, or bonus. I finally decided to start small and build my business.
Hi! My name is Caleb King, and I am the founder of People In Tech. Raised in southern California, I considered myself a hybrid between academia and athletics. My favorite sport growing up was basketball, which introduced me to life-long friends, created my competitiveness streak, and understood the saying, "hard work pays off."
Once I realized I wasn't going to be a professional basketball player, my focus started to shift to my other hobbies, like business, computers, and health. After high school, I decided to attend Arizona State University to study Computer Information Systems. During my time at ASU, I learned a life lesson, "you can get through anything if you put your mind to it."
It took me longer to graduate from ASU than I expected simply due to tuition increases, especially being an "out of state" student. I had to get a full-time job before finishing school. This started my career in the IT industry as a Technology Coordinator. I began to gain confidence in my tech skills when my colleagues would call me the "Tech Guy." I was fixing people, computers, tablets, phones, pair programming, troubleshooting, IT support. I even had one co-worker bring me her digital watch and said, "You can fix anything, fix this."
I was fortunate and found a mentor who suggested I start learning how to code, build apps, and work for a tech company. Ten years later, I am leading a development team and mentoring other developers in their careers.
It was time for me to give back and replicate what others did for me early in my career. I started small with a podcast. In the first two years, I was trying to find my voice. Then I began interviewing startups, authors, founders, and experts in the field. The podcast changed my life. It gave me purpose, something to think about and build upon. As time went on, I noticed others were asking how I gain success so quickly with my podcast. It was a lot of trial and error, from using different hosting solutions, branding, marketing, social media, monetization, and much more. It was a challenging first year, to say the least.
One of my followers asked if I would create an online course on how I broke into tech. Then others had a different request, which encouraged me to start a business from my platform. To help and educate others on how to leverage content creation to their advantage. Here we are about to go into another year, and I plan on releasing more content to help others get into a thriving industry and find success sooner than myself. Thank you for reading my journey, but we are far from being done.
