From freelance web designer to topping the Product Hunt charts with James Rose of Content Snare (FTF 5.4)

On today’s show, we’ve got an Australian software developer, who’s just over 1 year into his biggest endeavor yet. While he’s successfully built and sold one company in the past, he’s right now growing his latest creation – Content Snare. And it’s been an emotional rollercoaster – even beginning with him having to re-think his original business idea.

The phrase of the day is… ‘Zoom out’.

If you stick around to about halfway through the show, you’ll come to appreciate this wisdom from James – why he shares it and how he applies it in his daily routine.

You’ll also discover how James and his business partner came up with the idea for Content Snare – a client communication platform – and how having conversations with numerous designers gave them the validation they needed to start.
