Silicon Valley is full of tales of Instagram, Google, or Pokemon Go. Massive companies with huge audiences, funky offices, free food, and high salaries. But how do you start one of these mythical “tech startups”, and does every company start that way and always have to be that big? This episode, I interview Amar Ghose, the CEO and co-founder of ZenMaid.com, a small SaaS startup based somewhat worldwide (Amar travels constantly for pleasure). We dive into his entrepreneurial journey, and you’re sure to get some lessons from this episode.
“You can’t improve on what doesn’t exist” – Amar Ghose
Some of the highlights of our conversation include:
- Why you don’t have to be famous or well known to be profitable
- Starting ZenMaid, finding his business partner, and why they still have a $5 logo 3 years later
- How he sold $3000 worth of memberships to a new service before building anything (all without a website)
- Amar issues a specific challenge to you for the next week
- And much, much more
