On the show today is Jordan O'Connor
. Jordan is the founder of Closet Tools, a web app that helps Poshmark sellers.
I wanted to bring him on because Jordan has an inspirational story going from hundreds of thousands of dollars in student loan debt to making over $40k per month as the solo founder of a software company.
You'll hear about how just 5 blog posts drive the majority of the traffic and revenue for Closet Tools, the strategies he used to get his first users, and how he thinks about platform risk.
