A note from Grant
Joining us today from Bali, Indonesia is Amar Ghose. Amar is a full time digital nomad and the co-founder and CEO of ZenMaid.com, a Software as a Service company targeted at Maid Service owners.
Amar’s journey to tech CEO is built on an economics and philosophy degree from the University of California, Davis and a number of years working in sales, marketing and account executive roles for the likes of BidMail and UserVoice, as well as starting his own maid service called Fast, Friendly, Spotless.
In addition to his role as CEO, Amar is a regular advisor to people in the SaaS industry as well as for those wanting to lead the nomad lifestyle.
“Being able to travel the world, for a long time I’ve defined that as having a rich life. Growing up, there were only millionaires that could travel the world that could be all over the place and in all of these islands and that didn’t have to be in an office on a Tuesday.”
“It took us 38 or 39 months, or over 3 years to get to 10,000 dollars in monthly recurring revenue. I think we were making 7 or 8 thousand dollars in monthly recurring revenue when I actually turned it into a full time thing.”
“It’s easy to design a page and to make it look pretty. But to understand what the end user is trying to achieve and the little details that remove clicks for the actual customers, thats the kind of thing that can be a lot more difficult. Once you have those mockups, it’s pretty easy to get software actually created.”
