Beau Kittredge is my personal role model. He plays professional Ultimate Frisbee for the Dallas Roughnecks, but is also his own boss in all his business ventures, and his work as an entrepreneur is very inspiring. Beau says that it is his desire to create and be creative is his driving factor.
He started his own company in 2010 called Beau’s Books. He both wrote and illustrated three children’s books, known for being wildly imaginative but also with a large teaching element. His books are true children’s books but readers, especially parents, have found that they can relate to the stories and the lessons taught by Beau’s stories.
His next entrepreneurship adventure is his current project, which is developing his own video game, called Boredom Bugs. Beau wanted to make a new type of puzzle game by combining the strategy of a tower defense game and the skill of a mini game. In 2015, he assembled a team and started a Kickstarter to help fund the development of Boredom Bugs. Although the Kickstarter was unsuccessful he continues work on it and has committed himself fully to the game.
Currently, aside from frisbee and video game development Beau is involved in E.R.I.C, which stands for Early Recognition Is Critical, a organization that teaches healthy living and recognition of cancer symptoms. E.R.I.C has partnered with Beau to provide Ultimate Frisbee clinics, places where kids who have never heard about Ultimate can learn the game as well as learning how to be healthy and live a good life.
I wear Beau Kittredge’s number in respect for his creativity, his desire to never give up on his dreams and his ultimate dream of teaching health and the game of Ultimate Frisbee.
