Dan Norris, the founder of wpcurve.com and the author of the Seven Day Startup and is working on another book called Content Machine.
I met Dan at Super Fast Business Live 10 earlier this month where I had the pleasure of watching him speak. It is the talk that Dan shared a very moving story about his journey in startups, and he eventually arrives at his current success which is wpcurve.com. Dan shared some insights about startups, including the fact that I must have great design, simple names that are quickly dropped into a conversation like Slack or Uber and the importance of growth. A couple of great insights that he stood out for me from the talk was the idea of trading short-term revenue to long-term growth and secondly the importance of focusing on a monthly increase. Dan used an example saying a $6,000 a month business growing at a 15% will hit a revenue at 2 million dollars in two years and 10 million dollars in 3 years.
Dan also loves line chats where he shared plenty of it in his talk as his free life and having been trained as a financial analyst and banking the geek in me was drawn to Dan, and we had a few interesting conversations in the next two days at the conference.
