Today I’m talking to the founder of Levels, Sam Corcos. He created a device that people actually want to wear. It tracks your glucose  in real time so you can maximize your diet and exercise. I want to know what he did to get people to even know that Levels exists and how he got so much freaking demand.  I’ll ask about his previous company which went through Y Combinator, raised some money and sold.

Rank #3: #1998 This founder opens up finally

Podcast cover
Read more
Joining me is Martin Martinez. I know him as the founder of Alfred, which lets you market to people on LinkedIn. If I wanted to expand my network to know every founder in San Francisco, Alfred would allow me to find all those founders, add them on LinkedIn and then send them messages. And then if they do add me on LinkedIn, I could follow up with them both in InMail, which is LinkedIn’s email system or with regular email. And Martin said, “I’m going to let people decide how they’re going to communicate with people on LinkedIn.” So it got him into a little bit of trouble with LinkedIn, but he found a way out of it. I want to find out about all that in this interview.

Rank #5: #1996 He copied Screenhero

Podcast cover
Read more
Years ago there was this app that allowed developers to see each other’s screen, to interact with the screen at the same time to talk to each other. It was called Screenhero. It had a fan base that was just rabid in the developer community. But Screenhero got bought out by Slack and ultimately closed it down. The developers who loved it were upset, but here’s the beauty of that business. Instead of just being upset, today’s guest actually jumped in to do something about it. Ben Orenstein is the founder of Tuple, a remote pair programming app.

I interviewed today’s guest a while back about this brilliant idea he had. The company was called Diamond Candles and my audience of entrepreneurs was blown away with the fact that he was doing a million dollars a month in revenue from fricking candles. So many people were excited by it that some actually went off and said, “I can do that.” Justin Winter, the founder, told me it actually hurt his business. We’ll talk about that in the interview. Today, Justin is the founder of Boostopia, an all-in-one support operations platform. We’ll also talk about why he’s moved away from candles and on to SaaS.
