Welcome back to Rogue Startups. On today’s episode, I sat down with one of my oldest bootstrap web-world friends, Dave Schneider (formerly the co-founder of NinjaOutreach) to talk about SaaS, how our companies are doing, the current trends in the SaaS market, and Dave’s newest business (a digital marketing agency, Shortlist.io).
We also cover the tools we use to run our businesses, how Coronavirus has effected our businesses, where to make cost cuts (if necessary), and the possibly opportunities for pivoting and investing in small businesses after weathering this storm.
