Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. How did you get to where you are today?
I started working for myself online, mostly as a hobby, while still in college. It wasn’t until towards the end of college that I saw the potential of it and saw that I’d be making more there than any other career path I had in mind (and I enjoyed it more).
While in college, I won a national grant for creating a software tool to help make a psychological test more fast and efficient. That kind of showed me that A) there’s money to be made in software and B) there’s a lot of opportunities out there to make things more efficient and easier, as this specific tool helped speed up a 60 minute test that has been in place since the 1960’s to do it in 60 seconds and be more accurate at the same time. I realized that I could apply that to the business world by making things more efficient for them. That led me down the path of creating a team to develop software tools to help other businesses with various issues that they might have. So, I went from getting a $4,000 prize for the psychological test to creating businesses that have made seven to eight figures a year.
I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?
The biggest challenge is always finding the right people to help build your business, as well as finding the right avenues to connect with your potential customers. There’s a lot of testing, experimenting, failures, etc. along the way.
Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialize in and why should someone work with you over the competition?
Our companies specialize in various software solutions, especially ones geared towards AI helping businesses out with common problems they might have. A lot of our tools are built from the ground up to solve the very problems that we ourselves experienced in the past and didn’t find any good solutions for. So we know the business, and we know what it takes to make our tools useful for our customers.
Are there any unique challenges facing businesses today due to the pandemic? What can they do?
It totally depends on the business / niche. Several businesses have exploded in their online sales over the pandemic as more and more people realize how much easier it is to go online, but that also means more and more businesses are now looking for similar solutions, looking to compete with others, etc.. Ultimately that’s all a good thing that will only help both customers and businesses alike. Businesses can “take advantage” of this pandemic by focusing more on their online sales and what they can do to not be dependent upon a physical location.
Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?
From a business perspective, success to us means that we have a solution that businesses can get a lot of value out of quickly and easily. From a personal perspective, it means not having to worry so much about money and having the ability to be flexible with your schedule and do what you enjoy.
What have you been working on?
Robot Author is one of our latest AI tools that helps people and businesses automatically write unique content on virtually any topic they want. Whether it be for a blog, website, social media, articles, papers, summaries, reviews, etc.. It’s been quite the accomplishment, as we just released our latest version of it, which was a massive rewrite. And what’s even cooler is that we did this all on a fairly low budget and can compete with places like Microsoft, who likely have budgets in the 9 figures for similar things, while ours can do quite a few other things that are unique to just us (and at a tiny fraction of the development cost). We’ve also adapted this technology to help with additional things like summarize articles / books for others as well on top of creating unique content, where our AI can research and write unique content for users.
