Teammate Connection LLC


Tulsa entrepreneurs are unique in the world. How have your endeavor(s) added value to our community and the future of Tulsa?
My endeavors are adding value to our community and the future of Tulsa by providing a single source website to connect ALL players with ALL Sports. teammateconnection.com provides a place for you to fill out your profile, connect with others in your area (United States and Canada) who are interested in the same Sport as you, as well as you can post your upcoming events for others to see and join in!

Finding new friends that play your sport can be difficult and teammateconnection.com was created to fill that gap beginning right here in Tulsa!

If you aren’t failing, you aren’t succeeding. Share with us some of your failures to better understand how you have taken the lessons learned and applied them to support getting to where you are today.
Teammateconnection.com is a dream that began 8 years ago, and there have been many obstacles along the way.

To this date, I have gone through 6 web developers to help create this website that I have envisioned with a lot of money invested only to find out that the site would still not function the way it was intended to. This has definitely been a "Faith" test for me not to give up on my dream, and after 8 years I have finally found a team of people that believe in my vision and who have been a tremendous help to me in carrying it out.

Being creative is vital to an entrepreneurial endeavors success. Share an out-of-the-box experience that has made you stronger as an entrepreneur.
Bouncing back from the loss of finances, not to mention constant frustration due to several attempts at finding a reputable web developer has definitely made me stronger as an entrepreneur!

Tell us a story that involved you that either at the time or looking back makes you laugh.
Did you say Laugh? Or Cry? I've got plenty of stories that looking back turned into tears of joy! (well..for the most part) The only thing you can do is keep pressing forward and no matter what...Never Give Up!
