Tell us about yourself?
I am a simple man of the people, with a vision and a big heart, trying to make a difference in today’s ever-changing world.
What do you think is the single biggest misconception people have when it comes to startups?
I think many founders actually believe that throwing a bunch of money at a company means definite success. It takes so much more than that, and there are no shortcuts.
If you could go back in time to any moment from your journey, and give yourself one tip, what would it be?
Invest in building a stellar team from the start – it will save loads of time and effort in the long run.
What makes you stand out as an entrepreneur?
I believe more and more in what I do, and don’t give up. Push forward, connect your team, keep the morale and atmosphere positive
What are some of the best working habits you’ve gained over the past couple of years?
I read 20 pages every day and train 4 times a week. Keeping my body and mind in top form gives me the strength and conviction I need to keep being a team-leader.
Give us a bit of an insight into the influences behind the company?
Sayollo was born out of the understanding that in today’s climate, brands, SMBs, DTCs, and end-users are putting far more emphasis on conversion rather than awareness.
Performance is key and everyone wants to see their budgets convert into sales.
Where do you see your business in five years?
The way the world is today, I prefer to look forward one year at a time.
I want to keep smiling, achieve all my goals, and work with a team I trust blindly.
What do you think the biggest challenge will be for you in getting there?
Continuing to create excitement and never lose the magic, to keep believing in myself, my product, my team.
Talk to us about your biggest success story so far?
My success story is that I still manage to wake up each morning with a smile on my face.
Having the insight that the product we created will change the purchasing behavior of consumers worldwide, and the belief and trust of knowing how far it can go and the impact it will have on the world.
How do clients and customers find you? Are you much of a salesperson for yourself?
I am a natural salesperson and storyteller. I know and believe in my company and Sayollo, and will talk about it with anyone who listens.
What one tip would you give to fellow startup founders?
Try to understand from day one what will be the easiest way to make your product work and bring customers in
And finally, what do you hope the future brings both you personally, and your business?
More clients, endless transactions on our platforms, and bigger challenges that I know we will rise to each and every time.
