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:
Education Cloud PLUS
Hide My WP
One Geek Shop
Squirrly Digital Pack Global
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.
