Some people talk about startups.
I actually create and publish them.
There was a time when it was really nice to follow startups, read about startups, attend networking events and conferences for startups. But sweet pinapples, does everything change when you actually start multiple startups!
If you take a startup as a project (software-based) that you can scale and which needs to have product market fit, then boy, oh boy, did I start quite a lot of those.
I’ve learned a lot from validating and taking products to product market fit:
- Squirrly SEO
- Starbox PRO
- Education Cloud PLUS
- Squirrly Social
- Learning Solutions
- Squirrly SPY
- Hide My WP
- One Geek Shop
- Traffic-driving Agency
- Squirrly Digital Pack Global
- Rank Jumps
- SERP Checker Cloud
- Content Marketing: Squirrly Academy
- Shopify App for Squirrly SEO
- Shopify App for ContentLook
- Expectation Marketing Book
- Game Deals on Steam
- Guest Posting Service
- Get Growth TV
Now, I want to be clear. Not all of those have been taken from idea to prodcut-market fit by me. But all of them made $$ from their very own customers and I got to learn about how they work, why they work and managed to help them get in a good market-ready shape.
I also had lots of help and co-founders + teammates.
But blast me up in the sky if it ain’t awesome to be really living the dream, instead of just talking about it.
And this has nothing to do with just being a Mentor and Advisor for other startups, which I have also been.
No, I’m talking about stuff that my companies actually got to publish and get customers to.
