My guest today is a former designer, collector of advisors, and Canadian entrepreneur. In January 2003, he was running a four person design agency. He was using Microsoft Word to create his firm’s invoices. One day, he accidentally saved over an old invoice, and something in him snapped – he knew there had to be a better way. Over the next two weeks, he coded up a solution for his clients and eventually turned that side-project into what is now FreshBooks. My guest and his team spent the next three and a half years building FreshBooks out of his parent's basement. 14 years, he has built a team of 250+ people and FreshBooks is used by over 10 million people. Now, let’s hack… Mike McDerment.
