After Jon Beekman's 1st startup failed he took a $1000 "allowance" from his wife to start ecommerce website - Mancrates - selling gifts for men "that don't suck," growing from his apartment living room to 40 employees using a creative combination of extreme bootstrapping, growth hacking and lean startup methodology. 

Quote "Life is short. you should build what makes you happy and excited about."    

You'll Also Learn:

- Exactly what he focused on and invested in the first 6-months to find product-market-fit in his ecommerce niche. 

- How he pitched his co-founder to turn down a high-paying job in Silicon valley and work at his startup for peanuts. 

- The (sadly) unique way he got feedback from his customers - and why it worked so damn well. 

- The crazy, but simple, interview tactic Beekman uses to screen job applicants to make sure they're team players. 

- One (weird) interview question he asked each of his 40 employees to make sure they would fit into Mancrates corporate culture. 

- and more.

"Failure is spending your life doing something you're not passionate about." Jon Beekman, founder @mancrates
