Creating new software isn’t easy no matter how tech-savvy you might be. It involves a lot of planning in order to determine what processes it will be used on, and it also takes a while to get started with its actual creation. Some developers choose to identify their target market first before creating this new software or they get the necessary funding to get it off the ground.
But for Gary Nealon, creating new software is done to solve some problems for himself first. He automates it internally as much as possible and then perfects it for his own use before testing it in the marketplace. He believes that if there’s a need to create software for his business, then there are probably other people in the marketplace who also need it.
In today’s episode of Big Break Software Geordie is joined by Gary Nealon, a software developer and business owner where they discuss his shift from selling cabinets to selling his own software, his learnings from selling his own company, the benefits of working with a remote team, and what you can do to bring ROI from the software that you’re developing. It’s a great episode of personal experiences and business wisdom so make sure to stay tuned.
