83: From Bankruptcy to $20M Exit With Tim Fargo of Tweet Jukebox
It’s not easy to admit when you’re wrong, but you’ll rarely find a better time than when you’re filing for personal bankruptcy.
That’s what Tim Fargo of Tweet Jukebox had to do when he was a young man in 1991 and found himself a little too in over his head. But today he’s the founder of one of the most exciting and innovative social media automation engines in the world, right after selling his previous company for $20 million.
So how does someone go from bankruptcy to $20 million?
Well you do it by paying attention and learning from your mistakes, which is exactly why Tim is where he is today. He’s experienced both the lowest and highest points any entrepreneur can go through and he’s walked away a better businessman and all the wiser for it.
