The Exchange – An Oklahoma City Entrepreneurship Club

Tomorrow, March 29th, I have the honor of joining a great group of entrepreneurs to talk some real talk. I will be jumping on to talk with the members of The Exchange to talk about life, business, and to tell a bit of how my story has played out so far. The Exchange is creating a community for entrepreneurs who want a new way to network. I think this is going to be good! As I say often when talking to folks about my story – I’m an open book and all I ask in return is that when we…

I don’t want to hear it (and you shouldn’t either).

I hear it a lot. I hear it at City meetings. When talking about opening new businesses. On bicycles and skis. At the dinner table with my kids. I hear it everywhere and I decided something. I hear it because we aren’t willing to put in the effort to make it possible. It got me thinking to a time when I was sitting in a meeting with many of the City’s leadership staff. I remember telling one of them to stop telling me that what I thought was best was impossible but, rather, use that energy to tell me all…

It’s not as much about a degree as it is the opportunity of the future.

But here is the crazy one. I have had this itch for the past couple of weeks to go back to school. Then, out of the blue, I heard about a degree that Western Colorado (or, Western State for those that have grown up in and out of the Gunnison / Crested Butte valley) is offering online. I can’t stop thinking about it! Western has been a school I have thought about often and I pretty much thought I’d end up there for my undergrad work before I landed at Belmont. Maybe now is my chance. Crazy. Jason Duncan | A Thought Over Coffee | A Crazy…

Can this industry really change?

I figured it is a good time to talk about what I do right now.. You know, my current “career” now that I am out of coffee. Back in 2018, my wife and I started a real estate team (then with Keller Williams Central OK). In July of 2019, we moved our group to the “new to Oklahoma” Engel & Volkers – a global luxury brand of real estate advisors and professionals that we felt like cared about details, people, and brand like we did. The Duncan Group has enjoyed the national support of Engel & Volkers and the people…

Election Day: Nov. 3rd, 2020. It’s Tomorrow.

Early this year, I felt like saying yes and getting more involved. I’ve stumbled upon a fondness for public policy and strong communities – really wanting to do my part to help bring people and ideas together so help change this world. While most of this for me has been happening on a local scale (really working as much as possible to be a conversation starter in Downtown Edmond and beyond), I felt the need to step up on a broader scale as well. I read a post from Pete Buttigieg talking about poll workers and the need for a…

It’s November.

I can’t even believe we hit November 1st today. What a crazy and fucked up sort of year we have had. It really only feels like last week when the world as we know it was turned upside down and we were left with to wade through a new reality using our own ability. We have changed our perspective on life over the past few months. We’ve adapted. Regrown. Realigned. Reimagined. Reinvented and invested. We have all entered into this time in different spots and – I would argue – have the ability to come out on the other side…

A Crazy Side Effect of Sheltering In Place

We have taken all this COVID-19 stuff pretty seriously and pretty much stayed home. I know there are lots of folks out there that don’t seem to think it is as bad as it is out there but, either way, we are staying in as much as possible. We have been working from home (we own / lead a real estate team called the Duncan Group with Engel & Volkers in Edmond) but that has been mostly content writing, doing live streams, and helping clients we have already been working with. So, it has left us with a bit more…
