The Story Behind Thriverr
TL;DR: Thriverr helps you build your own business, crush your goals and create a life of abundance by providing you with hands-on education and powerful resources.
Hey, I'm David!
I've been building businesses online since 2013. During these years I've failed a ton. (More on that shortly.) But I eventually managed to make a decent living from it.
My entrepreneurial journey actually began back in 2004 when I would resell online guides for video games on eBay. Yep, it doesn't sound quite kosher, and I'm pretty sure it wasn't.
Since then I've built and sold a blog, run a software web development studio, and went through a lot of trial and error. And it wasn't until I fully committed to building my own digital agency in 2017 that I knew where I wanted to go professionally.
I'm not a millionaire (yet) nor do I consider myself an expert. However, during my journey, I've come across a lot of helpful resources, smart strategies, powerful tactics and brilliant mentors. And here on Thriverr I transform everything into valuable content that will help you save time and money.
Also, the content is not only created from my personal experience but also from other people and businesses who share their valuable insights and lessons.
So my goal with Thriverr is to create and curate the best education and resources out there that will help you on your journey of creating a better life.
About my failures:
- Startup in the fashion-tech and AI space (Never went past the MVP)
- Produce and sell a carry handle for bags (Never went past prototype)
- Dropshipping with Aliexpress (2x)
- Print On Demand clothing brand (2x)
About my successes:
- Mindfunnel - An agency for conversion optimization and digital marketing [active]
- Hellogenius - A German-based web dev & AI boutique based on word-of-mouth [active]
- E-Commerce - I resold branded high-priced underwear on eBay [closed]
- Platform/Blog - I promoted Startups and visitors could rate their business model [sold]
My educational background:
I'm a professionally trained computer scientist and I'm currently finishing my Master studies in Economic Sciences. I've also worked at a Big 4 consulting company and an investment firm. However, 99% of my skills that I use for my business are from Google, Youtube, Books, Udemy, Gary Vaynerchuck, André Chaperon, Miles Beckler and A LOT of trial and error during my projects.
Why I'm an Entrepreneur:
I'm in love with Entrepreneurship and being able to craft something myself from nothing and earn money from it. For me, purpose is always a bit overrated. I just want to create a life worth living and experience as much as the world has to offer while maximizing happiness in my one single lifetime. And with Thriverr I want to help you achieve the same. So that we can do what we want, when we want, whenever we want, with whom we want while giving back to others along the road.
When I'm not working I spend my time producing music (way too little), or excruciating myself in the gym.
Talk to you soon!
