Taylor Mingos

When I first heard about what does, I had the same reaction I bet a lot of people have:

  1. Awesome idea.
  2. Why didn’t I think of that? (hah!)

Today’s interview is with Taylor Mingos who did think of that and has created one of the hottest web tools for entrepreneurs.

In this “tell all” interview with Taylor, he lets us all in on how he has built to date, including:

  • Why he decided to start the company.
  • What he did first to get it going.
  • Did he have to raise outside money or was Shoeboxed bootstrapped?
  • How Shoeboxed created partnerships with other web apps such as FreshBooks and
  • The keys to marketing and promoting Shoeboxed, including press in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and TechCrunch.
  • …plus mistakes made, lessons learned, advice, and much more.

As always, would love to hear your thoughts, takeaways, and ideas sparked for your business from this interview (that is the whole point of RISE…learn from awesome, interesting, and creative entrepreneurs!).
