I used to be a full-stack web developer and digital marketing specialist. Most of my clients were web and advertising agencies. Now I turn my focus to the bigger picture. Not with development services, but with a new breed of coaching, consulting, and advisory that understands the digital world, but places value on individuals and stories. Because in a digital world, we need less, not more. We need clarity, simplicity, and most of all, we need heart.
Hi, my name is Benjamin Kamp. I started programming and building websites in 1998, and started my first business in 2001. Educated in biology, computer science, and business development, I’ve worked to push my limitations in designing and developing business focused solutions for an array of businesses, organizations, and government agencies both in the USA and Europe.
In 2006 I moved from the US to Sweden and was an advisor for multiple web and advertising agencies along with several larger media and e-commerce businesses. Getting to lead the technology side of so many businesses opened my eyes to something I had already begun noticing. Too many businesses and organizations were being hurt by their technology – broken and hacked websites, missing functionality, disappearing customer communication, and useless ad spend.
In 2012 I helped my wife start a wellness business, complete with a wellness center, cafe, and web shop. At the wellness center a lot of our focus ended up being on helping people with burn-out, which in Sweden has grown by 70% in 6 years. I again was reminded how much technology, which is supposed to be simplifying our lives, was doing the opposite.
I started understanding the severity of the problems that I saw almost daily as a web advisor and on-demand CTO. Companies being led by mostly well-meaning web consultants to invest in web “activity” that in the big picture was pointless, if not harmful, for the vision of their company.
In 2016 we started our move back to the US with new vision. Taking a lot of what we learned in the process and connecting business, marketing, technology, wellness, and minimalism to help individuals and organizations focus in on their vision and purpose.
“What does that look like?” I hear you ask. It’s technology that simplifies living. Advice that focuses on what NOT to do more that what to do.
