Today's guest had an experience like many people and thought, Man, these automated phone calls are frustrating!
They had to be stopped. So he entered a competition to come up with a solution. He won that competition.
Joining me today is a guy who has built three phenomenal companies. Two of them have sold. This guest is so big I don't even know why he's on Mixergy to be honest.
Today I have one of the key members of the Mixergy team, Arie Desormeaux the Mixergy Producer.
I invited her here to talk about how Mixergy operates and our iterative process.
It takes a lot of work and it took us a long time to change the way we worked internally.
Today's guest has been running his company for five years. It's huge but still under the radar.
I'm wondering why, so I've invited the founder here to talk about it.
One of my big challenges is that I have a San Francisco mindset. So when I see a small blog that isn't in the league of, say, TechCrunch, I really don't think much of them.
And that was true of Social Media Examiner.
You guys know I have two kids. Well, it seems like every six months I get a letter from their school telling me their is a lice outbreak. It's a total pain for a parent.
You may not know Steve Newman, but you probably regularly use the software he created. In 2005 he launched Writely, a pioneer online word processor which sold to Google and became the basis for Google Docs.
At Google he noticed a massive problem.
Today's guest is Dave Hanley, the founder of Tomorrow.me. It's an app that allows people to create a trust with a free will and a free trust, and then back it up with just the right amount of insurance.
Joining me today is an entrepreneur who was working on a startup during the dot com boom and he was shaped by the foolishness of that era.
Most recently he is the founder of a company called MobileIron which he took public.
Bob Tinker is the co-founder of MobileIron which helps companies enable their employees to choose the best devices and best apps they want to do their work.
