Like so many people others who've been affected personally and professionally, COVID destroyed our business before we really started it.
In fact, we launched our Marketing Service Platform on March 1st, 2020. Yes, that's right, March 1st =(
See, we worked together previously for a couple of years at an Austin-based startup helping local retailers & restaurants on main streets across the country.
We became not only great friends doing that together but also intimately familiar with the challenges small businesses face, and we made real, lasting relationships with many business owners that caused us to really empathize with their fight starting in March.
Believe it or not, on March 1st of 2020, two weeks before COVID shut down all of our potential clients, we took a giant leap of faith to launch our own business! We even made a press release 🤦♂️
We launched a service platform for small business owners & solopreneurs, but it only took about two weeks to realize it was the worst timing in the world to try to market/sell any solution to business owners. They were just trying to survive.
