The struggle is real.

After moving across the world with nothing but a few suitcases, a big idea and no discernible plan, I was off to the entrepreneurial races! They just don’t tell you that the ‘races’ are more like running a marathon in jandals – with both hands tied behind your back, uphill, in the dark. Let down by overseas freelancers and frustrated by the high prices of many local experts, I quickly realized every small business had a similar story – one of a shoestring budget, a wish for 48 hours in the day and a lot of trial and error in searching for good professional services. It wasn’t the only thing that needed fixing but it seemed like a good place to start.

and it matters.

We’re high maintenance. So we’ve crafted an artfully meticulous screening process that means we only end up with the best professional services. We have a knack for spotting bullshit and spend countless hours doing this one thing really, really well. You might wonder where we find the time. Let’s just say that we sleep less than most.
