Do you want to build an online business?
Do you know anyone who’s made it big?
In the latest episode of Future Skills, we talk to my friend Casey Gauss, founder & CEO of Viral Launch, which have helped Amazon sellers do more than 30,000 product launches. Consider this a case study from someone young and smart who has all of the experience fresh in mind.
Casey has grown Viral Launch from 1 to 45 employees in 3 years. The company was built off the back of an email list promoting products to Amazon sellers and has now morphed into a fast-growing SAS company.
When I first met Casey, he was already doing well. But just 1-1,5 years before that, he was in a really bad situation…
He’d dropped out of college (which he was at thanks to a scholarship on running track) and was dirt-poor; living on the paychecks from his little brother’s pizza-delivery job.
In this discussion we hear all about Casey’s backstory and he takes us through the events that transpired over the past 3 years as he’s been able to build an awesome team and continues to grow the business.
If there’s just 1 big thing you take away from the talk, it is caring.
It brings to mind something Ray Kroc said. Something like this: If you CARE about your customers, you might figure out a way to improve their basement.
It’s easy to lose sight of what matters in business. But as Casey suggests, it comes down to asking yourself: “Who did I help today?”
