As CEO of Online Optimism, Flynn Zaiger spends his day keeping his employees happy, his clients happier, and the office pups happiest.
Flynn graduated Tulane University in the Spring of 2012, getting a job in the corporate world. Six months there were enough, and with the many resources available to entrepreneurs in the city, decided to see if he could create a better place to work, performing much needed Internet marketing assistance to the many businesses in New Orleans and around Louisiana. In October of 2012, Online Optimism was started with nothing but a laptop and a lot of coffee. The company has never had outside investment and has remained profitable since day one.
He has led the company in its growth through five expanding office spaces, reaching a dozen team members in under five years at our largest office on Magazine Street. In addition to running Online Optimism, Flynn is actively involved in the community. He has presented repeatedly on entrepreneurial subjects at New Orleans Entrepreneur Week, and spoke on digital marketing and analytics at Sage Summit in Chicago. His expertise has led to him being featured on Forbes.com, Inc.com, Entrepreneur.com, CIO.com, and Social Media Today for his insights on digital marketing, managing millennials, and entrepreneurship.
