AJ (Carrd): The Accidental Founder
AJ never meant to start a company. He was building websites as a freelancer, but was frustrated with the popular website platforms.

Now with 800k users, it’s much more than a side project. And AJ has become much more than a freelancer. He’s a founder, even if it happened by accident. Tune in to hear AJ’s advice on what to do when your side project takes off with users and takes on a life of its own.
