RS001 - Justin McGill on Workado, 24 Hour Launches, and The Importance of Perseverance

Welcome to Episode 1 of the Rogue Startups Podcast.  Today I sit down for a chat with Justin McGill, founder of Workado.  Workado is a project management SaaS app for digital marketing agencies.  Justin launched Workado just a few months ago and is seeing solid success already, and has some great plans for grown very soon.

Justin’s first experiences in business was in the building of a digital marketing agency, which he took from less than $0 to Seven Figures a year.  Justin is sharing some of his experiences from that time, his work in the world of SaaS, and we talk about what it takes to make that first dollar!

In this episode we talk about how to scrap and hustle for those first customers, how persistence really pays off in sales, outsourcing development of apps, learning how to code, and self publishing on Amazon.
