Ruben Gamez on Staying Focused and Shipping Your Product

Ruben Gamez on Hack The Entrepreneur May 7th 2015


My guest for today is a software developer that worked hard to slowly become an entrepreneur.

He spent several years working as a manager for a billion dollar payroll company. And in his spare time he played around with some ideas.

Early 2009 he creates his first online product that fails to garner any attention or traffic. so back to the drawing board he went two more times before hitting onto something good.

He is now the founder of Bidsketch, which is online proposal software for web designers. He bootstrapped Bidsketch while working full-time and was able to grow it into a stable and profitable business. In fact, he has grown it to the point where he was able to quit his job, surpass his previous income, and enjoy the freedom of being an internet entrepreneur.

Now, let’s hack…
