These are my current & past business endeavors
Founder & CEO
dbVantage is where it started. This is my web design, development, and marketing firm that has strong roots throughout the Southeast. I?ve learned a lot from this business and it?s not slowing down any time soon.
Founder & CEO
Pharmedio was my latest venture and by far my most rewarding. We built some really innovative software for the pharmaceutical industry. This company was sold & shut down in 2017.
D.B. Hodge Investments, LLC
On 4/08/2010, I incorporated D.B. Hodge Investments, Inc., in the state of Mississippi. This was going to be my investment & holding company for my business activities.
This was about 2 years into my day trading activities and I realized I needed a better way to structure my money and plans. From starting with penny stocks, I went on to trading options and buying tax liens.
On 8/19/2011, I incorporated CitiLife, Inc., also in the State of Mississippi. This was the business that sparked my interests in the network effect of businesses and people everywhere. The idea for CitiLife was to be each city?s hyperlocal platform where the real news & communication could take place. CitiLife?s first location was HattiesburgLife, which is where I lived at the time.
This started off being my digital solutions company with the tag line, “Tailored Internet Solutions.” In my mind, I thought it was a great name, but when the first two clients I met with called it “Visex” instead of “V-Six,” I knew that name wasn’t going to be brandable. So, I decided to keep Vsix.co to be my VoIP, hosting, and technology company that powered all of my online business activities.
This is my web design, development, and marketing firm that has strong roots throughout the Southeast. This is also where my entrepreneurial endeavors started to make some decent money. I?ve learned a lot from this business and it?s not slowing down any time soon.
DB Ventures, LLC
DB Ventures is my venture?firm that will hold my future business endeavors. My plan for the long-term is to invest in multiple companies in various markets that will propel our lives forward into a better future. In a sense, this is almost my personal startup generator.
Pharmedio grew out of a pharmaceutical software project at dbVantage. It had so much potential with a growing market that I decided to form a company around it. While being CEO here, I learned how to build a startup. I also learned what could go wrong with startup.
What are my future plans?
Blockchain for Healthcare
I’m currently researching the reality of implementing the blockchain for health. Since healthcare is such a tangled mess, there are many ways where I can see the blockchain (Ethereum) being beneficial. This can go many different directions.
Direct Primary Care
Direct Primary Care is also a hot area of my focus. I despise the way health insurance companies are making our health industry worse off and I think paying doctors directly is going to be the future. Cutting out the insurance companies and going a P2P route will definitely help our healthcare industry.
3D Printing Houses
Another focus of mine is 3D printing houses. Yes, complete houses. I want to build tornado, hurricane, and fireproof houses that cost 50% less and take 50% less time to build that what is currently available. We’re still building houses with wood, hammers, and nails. It’s time to disrupt this $10 Trillion industry.
