#4: Robin Finney, founder of Wandering Aunt :

We chatted with with Robin, founder of Wandering Aunt ($2.3K/month). In our interview, Robin says:

I also believe that you don’t need to spend a lot of money on resources upfront. Start by getting a simple website up and use free tools like Mailchimp to grow your email list. Use trials of products you’re interested in prior to investing.
