I founded Mailshake and bootstrapped it to 50k users over the last 5 years. The rest of the companies I acquired along the way.
I started off as an SEO in 2001 and started a marketing agency (Single Grain) in 2008 where i learned to be a t-shaped marketer and how to (poorly) run a business. I sold the agency in late 2013 and took a job at a SaaS company (Wheniwork.com and helped it grow from $1M to $15M).
My goal was to learn everything I could about running a SaaS. I had a lot of free time on my hands going from running a business to being an employee so I found a developer and started a Mailshake.com (previously contentmarketer.io).
Mailshake took it sweet time to achieve product market fit so I got bored (again) and started buying SaaS companies and used my experience in sales and marketing to grow them.
Along the way my wife and I had 3 kids and moved to Austin, TX.
Don't let the sexy overview fool you. I made hundreds of mistakes along the way. Overtime I've learned to fail better and faster.
I'm an open book so ask me anything.
