Episode 6: The fall GetGuided, Year 4 and almost 5
Overall, looking back it was a long journey with ups and downs and I am thankful for all. At times I think I worked a lot and learned a lot; at times I think I did not do enough and was not enough for the role. Those doubts will always be there, but the key is to understand both pluses and minuses of the experience and take that onto the next journey with you. Note: This episode may include a 1-minute ad.

Episode 5: The most active GetGuided, Year 3, Ups and Downs
In 2017, we switched our focus from student suppliers to professional guides and from just travellers to travellers and businesses, such as hotels and travel companies. When we decided to pivot our focus, we also have decided to change our product as well. This decision was taken at the end of 2017 and the process continued throughout 2018. My co-founder, back then, already was hired into one of the largest tech companies was not be able to focus as much as before, thus we hired a tech lead to work on the product development. Besides the tech lead, in different quarters of 2018 we hired a supply manager, a sales manager, large client adviser and a part-time designer. In this episode I will focus on key lessons... #Podcast #Entrepreneurship #ProductManagment #GetGuided

2017 was a year when things really got off the ground for GetGuided. We finally started getting customers, we received our first investment and we were building our product.

So in this episode, we will look at a real kick-off year of GetGuided where the most action has happened, 2017. Here is episode four, the second year of GetGuided.
