How Creating Every Day Built a Multi-Million Dollar Business, with Founder and CEO of ConvertKit Nathan Barry
Nathan Barry is the Founder and CEO of ConvertKit, an email marketing tool for creators. Before ConvertKit's growth took off, he worked on building iPhone apps, writing books, and coding websites. Nathan got his start as a web and software designer, but soon became obsessed with the world of audience building and book publishing. During that time he wrote 3 books (The App Design Handbook, Designing Web Applications, and Authority) and 2 courses (Photoshop for Web Design and Building Profitable Audiences).
In October 2014, Nathan made the decision to walk away from the book and training business and focus full-time on ConvertKit (at the time we had just $1,000/month in revenue and now we have $770,000/month). Since then we’ve grown 300x and have an amazing team, product, and customers. And I feel honored to be apart of the ConvertKit team!
Over the past year, I have learned so much from Nathan. And in this episode we really dive into some big topics like: the importance of asking why and questioning the "normal" ways of doing things, the true gift of a side hustle, the inside look of how Nathan wrote 3 books in 2 years, how working in public, creating every day, and teaching everything you know are a key parts of entrepreneurship, knowing when to shut down or double down, and how to tap into vulnerability and use it as a way to overcome fear and connect with others.
