Q: How did you get started on Tribecto Automations?

I’ve been in the sales and marketing space for over 10 years now, starting from the bottom and working my way up. I started out as a lot of sales professionals do, hitting the phone in a call center environment. I was pretty good at it but it wasn’t something that got me excited about getting out of bed in the morning so I decided I wanted to get involved with marketing and the agency space.

I should have prioritized my physical and mental health sooner. In the beginning, the business was all consuming. I was working extremely long days and not seeing much of the outside world.

I came up with the idea for Tribecto while working at InvisiblePPC a white label PPC agency. I had re-designed and re-built the sales process a few times while working there and had really learned how to wield the CRM and automation tools to build better experiences for our customers.

As a lot of ambitious professionals do, I started doing some consulting as a side gig to earn some extra money on evenings and weekends. I was really focused on building up a small base of retainer clients that I could work with on a long term basis and build a solid foundation of cash in the bank to give me some runway if I decided to leave my full-time role.

I was initially finding most of my new clients through Facebook communities. People would post asking about how to solve specific problems with software tools and automation, I’d send a PM and offer to help.

It was a slow process but after around 12 months of plugging away, Tribecto was making more than I was making in my full-time role, which was amazing. But I was paying for it by working 80 hours per week and my mental and physical health was really being hit hard.

I was faced with a dilemma. I enjoyed working at InvisiblePPC and was very loyal to the company, so I didn't want to leave. But something had to give. I didn’t want to look back in 10 years and regret not taking the chance to do something on my own, so I handed in my notice and planned to run Tribecto Automations full time.

That was how it all started!
