Would you rather have one million dollars in the bank today or a chance to have ten million a decade from now? It’s a philosophical question that comes down to the time value of money and your tolerance for risk.
In this week’s episode of Built to Sell Radio, John Warrillow interviews Cody McLain, the founder of a website hosting company called Pacific Host. McLain decided to sell his business at the ripe old age of 23.
Cody McLain is the Founder and CEO of SupportNinja. After starting his first business at 15, he created and sold 4 more companies in just under a decade. Over that time frame he has helped thousands of customers in more than 100 countries worldwide. He’s been featured in Forbes, Mashable, Entrepreneur and others for his achievements and diverse skill set. His first outsourcing company was SupportMonk, aimed primarily at service providers, offering expert system administrative support. With this success he noticed an urgent need for a similar service targeting emerging technology and business. This led to the establishment of SupportNinja. The company maintains a unique structure for systematically helping organizations large and small resolve their outsourcing needs.
