Being in the business of selling software, I have admired Patrick’s work for years, so I was a bit starstruck at the beginning of the conversation — all this aside, we get to some great stuff and have a few laughs (at ourselves) too.
I live and run my business from a small northern town in Ontario, Canada. To be honest, it can be very isolating. In order to deal with this, my family and I like to travel and make a point of doing this as often as possible.
Today’s guest is a 24-year old entrepreneur from Utah who believes that most entrepreneurs fail due to not being determined enough. This guy has determination.
I not only saw today’s guest speak, but I talked to him a lot about my then soon to be released product VelocityPage. His insights were invaluable to me and I am so glad he agreed to join me today to share his knowledge of business, because he knows his stuff.
The idea of creating art as a business, rather than just for arts sake, is an idea that I have always been intrigued with. I have often wondered why more artists don’t choose to take that route in order to turn their art into a business.
This realization is one of the things that I wish I would’ve learned earlier on in my business journey and the conversation I had with today’s guest would have helped me immensely.
I know that it is common for interviewers to refer to their interviews as conversations, this makes them sound more personal.
This is something that has always baffled me — I come from a place where if you don’t have customers and revenue, you don’t have a business.
Today’s guest founded and runs not just two startups but 2 startups based on sales and helping you close and earn more revenue.
Almost 2 years ago today, I was preparing to attend my first online business conference and it was being held in Las Vegas. Two things from this time make it very memorable and meaningful.
First off, the day before I was to leave I was struggling to get a simple landing page up on WordPress, with the intention of sending people to it so they could give me their email and I could keep in touch — 2 years ago this was no easy task. After pulling my hair out and slamming my laptop shut, it dawned on me that I can’t be the only person with this same struggle; this was the birth of VelocityPage.
