Show Notes

Hey there! Have you ever wondered what it’s like to reach a major milestone in your startup? Well, in this episode, I’m excited to share with you the recent achievement of my own startup, Pod Squeeze, hitting $100,000 in annual revenue. But it’s not all smooth sailing. I’ll be diving into the challenges we faced, including a decline in monthly recurring revenue and a 20% churn rate. To combat this, I’ll be discussing the introduction of yearly plans with a discount. Join me as I reflect on the financial implications and potential valuation of the company. Plus, I’ll be sharing an awkward moment with my co-founder and the valuable lesson I learned about navigating disagreements and leveraging each person’s expertise. Tune in as I highlight the importance of discussions and compromises in co-founder relationships.
