My time at The Babylon Bee and Not the Bee has come to an end
· Oct 31, 2023 ·

"For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven…"

My season at The Babylon Bee and Not the Bee has come to an end. I have sold my remaining stake in The Babylon Bee, as well as my stake in Not the Bee, and now it's time for me to ride off into the midday sun.

I have not been operationally involved with the Bee for some time now, so no changes there. At Not the Bee, Dan Dillon, who co-founded the company along with myself and Seth Dillon, took over in recent months as majority owner and head dude in charge.

I always figured I could go on forever working like a maniac and seeing every terrible thing that happens around the world in real-time. But, I finally hit a concrete wall after many years, and there was no way around it. I tried to find one, even as the inevitable consequences of burnout compounded.

This is all quite bittersweet and difficult for me. I love these companies dearly and always will. They have been my entire life for the better part of a decade, and what an adventure it has been. I will be eternally grateful to all of you, as well as my co-laborers, for making the Bee and NTB what they are today. It's simply astounding. And there is still no limit to what they can become.

As far as myself, I am going to venture out of my office and back into the world for a bit to see where God leads me. I don't know where that is, but I would not be surprised if we met again somewhere down the road.

Long live The Babylon Bee. Long live Not the Bee.

Thank you.
