How to find determination when the chips are down

You might refer to it as crushing it or pushing through or even the grind. 

Determination is often overlooked in the entrepreneur’s journey. Some will fold when faced with the slightest friction of startup life. Others will give up when they can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Dre Armeda, co-founder of Sucuri, joins us to talk about determination and preparation when starting your first business. He’s also half of the talent over at the DradCast a popular WordPress podcast.

A story of determination and perseverance

Many of you might know Dre form his podcast, but you might not know the genesis of his startup Sucuri.

A bootstrapped security company that helps protect WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla sites from being hacked. I actually subscribe to their service for this site and a few of my client websites — I’d suggest taking a look at their offerings if you’re in need.

Like many of us in the early days, Dre and his team were faced with making the decision of going all in on the company. Even with full-time jobs, decisions had to be made to quit and focus on growing the business. Tune in to find out what that was like and how they went through the steps to get there.
