Matt Mickiewicz, who began his entrepreneurial journey at 14 years old when he launched his first startup, recently commented on how he overcame the top three challenges he faced when starting a company.
In an article for Entrepreneur magazine, Mickiewicz shared some of the lessons he learned from beginning a new venture. One of the first things Mickiewicz found helpful was having the courage to trust his instincts when developing a new brand , 99designs.com, which expanded upon the premise of SitePoint. SitePoint is a website that features educational resources for web developers, an idea that the entrepreneur came up with based on his experiences in web development.
“It came to me that if I was having this problem, countless other people were as well, so I started documenting and categorizing all the useful links that I was finding during my research and put them online as a one-page site. The rest, is history,” Mickiewicz told Young Entrepreneur.
Over time, the posts began to evolve into informal design contests with prizes awarded to the winning artist. This inspired Mickiewicz to create 99designs.com, which took the graphic designs to the crowdsourcing sector.
