#1: Renee Welsh, founder of Booking Boss:

We chatted with with Renee, founder of Booking Boss ($/month). In our interview, Renee says:

Do not just keep up with the times; stay ahead of them. And if ever you feel disheartened with challenges, bring your focus back to the very heart of what you do and why you are doing it.

We chatted with with Juan, founder of Palco4 ($100K/month). In our interview, Juan says:

It's easy to go with the flow and pursue quick success, big numbers, immediate visibility - but the important thing is just to do your best every day, have a solid structure and the other things will come sooner or later.
