Garrett has had an interesting career. I’ve been following his writing since way back when he was at BrightCorner. These days he has made the transition from consulting to products, but it took a while. He had to fight some interesting battles along the way to being ablet o create, market and sell his own app. Along the way he also managed to put together a book/spreadsheet and task list to help other would-be founders launch their own Saas app.
