    Ep.546 ~ He Built a $1.4 Billion Software Company Before He Was 30 ~ Christian Owens

    Ep.546 ~ He Built a $1.4 Billion Software Company Before He Was 30 ~ Christian Owens

    The CEO and Founder of Paddle.com is on the mic today and he is going to share his story of building a $1.4 Billion SaaS company before the age of 30.

    At the age of 12 Christian Owens taught himself how to code and started building a software company. By the age of 16 he dropped out of highschool and scaled his invoicing software business to $4 Million Annual Recurring Revenue. As a result, he ran into a lot of tax issues. Christian then decided to start a software company to solve these problems after being told he would have to build it himself to find a solution. 

    So Christian founded Paddle. Paddle became a payments infrastructure for SaaS businesses, and he grew Paddle into a $1.4 Billion company before the age of 30 growing 175% year over year. Paddle, recently hit the unicorn level by raising $200 million, it has attracted developers with over $1 billion in volume and integrates Alipay, Google Pay and iDeal, empowering software companies to sell and grow globally. In 2016, Christian was named one of Forbes’ “30 under 30”.

    Ep.545 ~ The 38th Richest Self-Made Woman ~ Janice Bryant Howroyd

    Ep.545 ~ The 38th Richest Self-Made Woman ~ Janice Bryant Howroyd

    I love incredibly successful people that still have the down-to-earth human touch. It is really enjoyable to talk with them and understand why they are who they are.  Today’s guest is one of those people and yet so much more. Janice Bryant Howroyd is the founder The ActOne Group and she is the very first African-American female to found a billion dollar company, and yes you heard me right, a billion dollar company.  

     

    What is even more impressive about Janice is that speaking with her was like talking to an old friend. She is incredibly relatable and really a caring and authentic human being.

     

    During the interview I noticed this and really wanted to get behind her story and what made her the amazing individual and entrepreneur she is today. We chat about her upbringing as an African-American in an extremely racial environment with a family of 11 children. We chat about he life philosophy, her habits and what she vales. We chat about how she maintains personal relationships while running a billion dollar company, the challenges of being a female entrepreneur, how us humans like to operate in tribes and some of her favorite books she recommends even though she has a 6000+ book library.  

     

    At the end of the podcast, we ask Janice about her philosophy on influence in today’s world and how she handles it responsibility.
