    Sweet video dude, by the end of the year i’ll be more focused on the start up space too. Its a much more vibrant and scalable model to work on as opposed to the generic IM space

    Dont get me wrong I luv the IM space but it definitely has its limitations in its original form

    1. David Siteman Garland says:

       Zed – Totally get it. I think we all change, evolve, zig, zag, etc. nothing wrong with exploring a new space. That is what life (and biz) is all about.

  2. JulesWatkins says:

    Yaro is inspirational, his podcasts got me fired up when I started a couple of years ago. Now I am using Cranky Ads to promote my stuff. Liking the simplicity of the interface.

    1. David Siteman Garland says:

       Very cool Jules! How is Cranky Ads doing for you?

      1. JulesWatkins says:

        I have targeted one niche site using Cranky Ads and I make more back than I spend, which is always the best way 🙂

        1. David Siteman Garland says:

           Nothing better than that my friend!

  3. Awesome interview guys. The part about social relationships is so true, days go by when the furthest I go from my hours is the mailbox. I have a software startup too and it’s a great and frustrating experience, so thanks for the insights and comfort that solo entrepreneurs may work on their own, but they are not alone.

    1. David Siteman Garland says:

       Exactly, I think it is always good to know others are in the same boat (and did something about it!)

  4. Yaro Starak says:

    Thanks heaps for the great interview David. I feel we really should have spent more time talking about rollerblading though!

    I hope everyone enjoys it!

    1. David Siteman Garland says:

        LOL I agree with that one. Next time!

  5. Shelia says:

    Great interview! I especially loved the more “behind” the scene look at Yaro and his journey. Thanks again.

    1. David Siteman Garland says:

      So glad Shelia. You’re more than welcome 🙂
