By Hugh Gillespie smmm panel forum moderator | February 09, 2019 10:09:10Hugh Gillespie, co-founder and CEO of the Smm panel forums, has written about the “Star Trek” franchise, its influence on television, and the impact of his company on the business world.
His new book, Smm: How Hollywood Changed the Way We Live, works from his perspective.
In it, he reveals the origin stories behind “Star Wars” and “Starman,” his passion for “Starfleet” and his involvement in “The Simpsons.”
Gillespie also offers a few personal stories, including the time he spent working as a bartender at a bar, his time at a “StarTrek” convention, and his time in the movie theater, the latter of which he helped to direct.
In an exclusive interview with Fortune, Gillespie said that while the company is still a “very small, but very passionate, group” that was formed at its launch in 2005, the company has grown into a business with a $50 billion revenue and is expected to grow into a billion-dollar business.
“We’re not the only company that’s been growing like this, but we’ve had some very strong leaders in the past,” Gillespie told Fortune.
“It’s not a surprise that people are coming to us now because we’ve been doing this for a very long time, but the fact that people have come from all walks of life and all walks, all walks are coming in and wanting to help us is something that is very exciting.”
Smm is the “brainchild of a single person who is really passionate about the ‘Star’ franchise,” Gillieres said.
“He came up with the idea of it and I’ve been a part of it for two years.
It’s a unique way to do business and I love the company.”
When asked if he had a favorite scene from “Star” or any of the franchise’s other shows, Gillierees answer was unequivocal: “There’s not one.
I’ve seen it all.”
His personal stories and perspective are all part of Smm, and it’s not just because he has a passion for the “Stars.”
It’s because he’s a very hard worker, he said, and because he wants the Smms to be a part and be part of the community.
He also sees Smm as a way for people to make a difference in the world.
“I love to be an entrepreneur.
I’m not a business person and I’m always looking to change things and I see the value of this in a very holistic way,” he said.”
There’s a lot of people that have a very big impact on the world, and I think it’s really important for us to try to be part in that impact.
I really want to make sure that we’re helping people, but also helping ourselves and helping the world.”
In addition to “Star,” Gillies Smm blog offers advice and insight into the history of the company, its employees, and what it takes to succeed at the business.
