About the Episode

The what's what...

Meet Adam Metcalf - Co-Founder of ZeeMee, a private social community for colleges.

In high school, Adam wanted to work in foreign service - he thought he might be an ambassador one day. After graduation, he had the opportunity to live overseas in places such as Belize, China, Russia, and the country of Georgia.

And it was while in Moscow that Adam met his future wife Mandy and became a Christian. Once Adam came to faith, his dreams and priorities shifted a bit, and he wound up moving to Wyoming where he took a job as a financial advisor at Morgan Stanley.

After the financial crisis of 2008, Adam decided it was time to do something different - he just wasn't all that passionate about advising folks on how to increase the performance of their portfolios. So, Adam went and got a master's degree in education and became a teacher.

It was during this chapter of his life where the idea, which would eventually become ZeeMee, was born. Tune in to hear the remarkable story of a company that almost lost it all, but pivoted to become the No. 1 college search app and one of the most popular social network apps on the app store.
