Why Did you start your business?
I was flying cross country reading a book called Moby Duck when the idea blossomed in my head. I feverishly typed notes to try to keep up with the idea. It was a side project that check all the boxes of a project I wanted to dedicate myself with: Creative, interactive, web-based, connective, user-generated content, and education.
What makes your business unique?
It encourages people to be creative, even if in small bites. Making you part of something bigger than yourself and launching something that can take on a life of its own.
What's the biggest mistake you've made with your business and what did you learn from it??
Taking time to fix problems that may not be problems. We spent a lot of time in early development layering solutions to problems that might not really be problems. I think we learned (hope we learned) to produce to a point where you can actually determine where issues are, then fix them.
what big goal do you have for your company and how do you plan to achieve it?
what advice or tips do you have for people wanting to start their own business or follow their dreams?
Try. Dreams with no action are just dreams. Try, experiment, learn, do, accomplish, fail...I like all of these over dreaming.
