It’s an entrepreneur’s dream scenario.
One day you’re couch surfing at a buddy’s apartment in the Philippines and a few years later you’ve co-founded one of the fastest growing startups in the world. It’s an amazing story and I was more than a little excited to sit down with Simon Payne, co-founder of Lead Pages.
Simon and his co-founders (Clay Collins and Tracy Simmons) built an incredible company. All together, they’ve signed up more than 120K recurring customers, raised more than $38M, and have put together a team of more than 160 employees.
With all that – why in the hell was Simon walking away?
I had to get to the bottom of this, so I got Simon on the phone to discuss how Lead Pages came to be, their process for scaling the company, and why he thought it was the best move to leave.
This is an amazing interview and I’m very thankful to Simon for sharing his story with us.
