In my facebook group for productized services, I have been doing book reviews every few weeks. The recent book "7-day startup" sparked a challenge to not only read the book but start something and follow the process outlined by the author Dan Norris.
So I decided to launch Applause Lab based on a need I wish I had with past companies. I have a few friends in the space and it always attracted me. I personally love the customer journey and doing customer interviews so this was a natural fit for me.
If you want to see the full seven days of me starting Applause Lab I documented the journey here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/192719694795609/permalink/530649424335966/
The process was a lot of fun. At first, I wasn't sure if I would actually continue with the business but the feedback was overwhelmingly positive for the service. As well, the connection and motivation I had for the business reeled me in. So I have decided to run with it and build out the business further and see where I can take it to close out the year.
