VP Of Sales By Day, SAAS Startup CMO By Night w/ Jeff Weiner
WHO IS IT?
Jeff Weiner from Kansas City, Missouri
WHAT IS THEIR SIDE HUSTLE?
Jeff is the Chief Marketing Officer at a SAAS (software as a service) startup called Real Quantum, which is focused on the commercial real estate appraisal market. For Jeff, this is a SAAS side hustle and he hopes to turn it into his full-time job in the coming years.
WHY SHOULD I LISTEN?
The SAAS business model is a great opportunity to turn a product into a recurring revenue machine and Jeff shares how he and his team of 9 co-founders are taking an industry without much technological advancement and streamlining the workflow of commercial real estate appraisers. It was great to hear how they are taking a lot of the risk out of this venture by having all but 1 of the founders do this as a side hustle.
HOW WILL IT HELP ME?
As you will hear at the beginning of the episode, Jeff decided to do this later in life. Usually, when people hit 30, they think they are too old to do something like this but Jeff is proving that wrong (along with all the other co-founders as well). Take Jeff’s advice and find something you are passionate about and those 10-hour Saturday workdays won’t seem like work at all.
