This week I continue my conversation with Austin.
Dallas-based entrepreneur Austin Eudaly made his name in oil and gas, but a recent pivot has led him to the completely disparate industries of film and online dating.
He began working in the oil and gas industry in 2005 holding positions for Meredith Land & Minerals Co., Flatiron Energy Partners, and most recently served as managing partner at Gallatin Natural Resources.
“From 2008 to 2012 Mr. Eudaly personally oversaw leasehold acquisitions in multiple basins acquiring some 47,000 acres for certain exploration and production partners,” according to the Gallatin website.
“I feel like a lot of people push their dreams back and say ‘maybe I’ll do that one day,’ and you get to the end and say ‘you know, I really should’ve given that a shot.’”
While he still holds an advisory position at Gallatin he has decided to give his full time and attention to his new projects.
Eudaly said the change in direction comes from the opportunity to work on something he truly loves.
“This is a lifelong dream,” Eudaly said. “I feel like a lot of people push their dreams back and say ‘maybe I’ll do that one day,’ and you get to the end and say ‘you know, I really should’ve given that a shot.’”
