#2: Mark Zhang, founder of Manta Sleep:

We chatted with with Mark, founder of Manta Sleep ($800K/month). In our interview, Mark says:

We are anti-hustle culture. Working long hours and “hustling” is absolutely idiotic because nobody can make great decisions working 12 hours a day. At that point, you're just a walking zombie working on low-value tasks and pretending like you are actually doing something important.

Additionally:

We spent $50,000 on Facebook ads to drive traffic profitability to the crowdfunding campaign. Paid traffic is critical for crowdfunding because it’s much more reliable and consistent compared to something like PR.

Further:

Break a big goal into smaller goals, and celebrate those successes at the smaller-goal level. Big ideas, can be challenging and intimidating, so we all get overwhelmed sometimes.

Nickel and diming customers is not going to get you that NPS score that builds a word-of-mouth free-CAC marketing machine.
