#1: Michael Vahey, founder of Breathe Healthy:

We chatted with with Michael, founder of Breathe Healthy ($90K/month). In our interview, Michael says:

Don’t let the naysayers bother you: they are probably just jealous anyway.

Additionally:

Do you want your business to succeed, or are you only interested in being the boss? If it is the latter, please rethink your motivation for what you are doing. Success is a team effort.

Further:

Don’t try to create a market. It’s almost impossible for a startup to do.

#3: Colin McIntosh, founder of Sheets & Giggles:

We chatted with with Colin, founder of Sheets & Giggles ($200K/month). In our interview, Colin says:

Build a business model first, not a product. So many entrepreneurs spend time and money building a solution for a problem they perceive without ever validating that it’s a viable business.

Additionally:

I think the single best thing we do to drive conversion is answer all Facebook comments and messages within minutes.

Further:

Don’t hire people you know are assholes just because you need someone to do the job. Suffer and do it yourself, or delay the launch, but don’t hire assholes. It’ll hurt you more in the long run.
