#1: Kyle Rand, founder of Rendever:

We chatted with with Kyle, founder of Rendever ($/month). In our interview, Kyle says:

The people who tell you that you’re doing amazing, even when you feel like closing your computer and crying, they’re the ones who will get you through the darkest times, and the ones you’ll want to be there alongside you as you celebrate the brightest moments.

#2: Janine Halloran, founder of Coping Skills for Kids:

We chatted with with Janine, founder of Coping Skills for Kids ($20K/month). In our interview, Janine says:

I had a hard time dealing with failure in the beginning. Over time, I realized that I learned the most from my failures. Even though my subscription box failed, that actually made it easier for me to launch the next products I created.

Additionally:

The biggest lesson I learned is that even if you don’t know it yet, you can find a course, website, or a podcast to help you.

Further:

It can feel impossible when you’re faced with tasks that you have no idea where to start. But it is good to know that you can learn to do the things that are not in your area of expertise/training. There are lots of resources out there, you just have to go looking for them.

Just get started. Jump in and start failing. Then fail over and over and over again. 7 years later I’m still failing, but I’m doing it in new and exciting ways.

Additionally:

Every business I have started came with its own challenges and unique problems. The most important skill you can have is to be able to learn new things.
