Moe and Dan Norris discuss how he built a cashflowing startup from scratch in 7 days (and has since grown to over $400,000 in annual recurring revenue in a few short years).
You Learn When You Launch
If you knew that you could launch a profitable business within seven days, would you do it? It goes without saying that we live in an era of never-ending ‘transform your life’ promises – and while the vast majority are without merit, the ones that grab your attention often come from those who’ve built a reputation for walking the walk. After several false starts, Australian Dan Norris thought to combine the lean approach to business with his desire to serve the nearly 75 million blogs that depend on WordPress, and within a span of seven days, WP Curve was born. For as little as $69 per month, this subscription service will give you unlimited access to a talented team of developers who will provide maintenance and support for any WordPress blog. Not bad for a week’s work.
Dan chronicles his day by day journey in his latest book, The 7 Day Startup: You Don’t Learn Until You Launch, and in this conversation, his key insights will include:
The mental fortitude to withstand repeated missteps
How to distill an idea to its essence
How to build a website in less than 24 hours for under $100
How to explain the first version of your MVP to a potential customer
