Welcome to Season 6 of Freelance to FounderFor our first episode this season, we take you into rural America. It was 1998, and a young wireless modem salesperson was looking at ways to automate his follow up with potential customers via email.

So, he learned how to write a script in a programming language called Perl that would make this possible.

That script turned into its own set of customers, which led to Tom dropping out of university, which led to founding AWeber.
