In this episode I have a chat with Michael Perry.
For those who don't know, Michael is, before anything else, father of two sons, Leander and Solomon. He is CEO of Maple, a family tech startup looking to help families free up time and spend more quality time together.
Before launching Maple, Michael was the founder of Kit, a fully automated virtual marketing assistant for small business owners. Before being acquired by Shopify, Kit was live in 30+ different countries and helped small businesses all over the world. After the acquisition, he then became a director in Shopify where he led product and marketing technology for 4 years.
Michael is also an angel investor, small business enthusiast, and considers himself to be a bit of a survivalist. He had amazing personal and professional experiences as an entrepreneur and business leader and is here today to share some of these learnings with us.
Here are some questions I asked Michael:
This was a great chat, and I'm sure you will find it extremely insightful.
Your most significant enemy is your ego. Seneca said that we suffer more from imagination than reality, and that is true.
We all suffer from problems, temptations, and disappointments. To experience success, you must have experienced failure.
