A few months back I watched a Mixergy episode where this guy named Dane Maxwell (smart dude for sure) talked about how he’s started a few small software companies that have pumped predictability into his life as an entrepreneur.
No matter what business you’re in…
- Local service business
- Hard products seller
- Online publishing
- A big ass bank or something…
… predictability (as far as revenue goes) is a good thing.
But, most businesses have everything but predictability. I’d suggest you check out the Mixergyinterview this week.
But before you head over there…

Recently (just before my wife and I had our little baby boy Colton) I got on the phone with Dane on his birthday… and picked his brain on everything from…
- His story and how he started his most successful software app (brings in about $40k/mo w/ little of his effort not)without coming up with the idea himself, without knowing how to code, nothing.
- The 3 specific questions to ask in any market BEFORE you sell anything that basically assures people will buy
- His “airport and beer” story that helped him realize his lifes purpose (this wasn’t something we planned on talking about, it just came up as we were talking)
- Exactly how to bring recurring revenue and income predictability to any business (even non software businesses… including a pizza parlor that he talks about as an example)
- … and his new project called theFoundation that is his new passion (check out that link for sure, great lesson in marketing and transparency).
