You probably don't know who I am. So let's start with that.
I'm Stefan Pretty, I'm Scottish and I'm the CEO and founder of world renowned (just kidding on the renowned bit) Subbly a platform that makes it super easy to start and run a subscription business.
I have previously founded 4 other businesses (technically more). I've worked with huge household brand names and helped them with their marketing.
I'm a self taught jack-of-all-trades, the journey of skills came in this order: design, front-end coding, SEO, search marketing, back end programming and now running SaaS businesses to help others run theirs! I'm not a master of any by any means but I love learning.
Born and raised in Scotland, I now live in Los Angeles, CA for the business and I've previously lived in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Perth.
Ok enough, I'm glad that's over with.
Why are you here?
This is my new swanky blog. Sorry it took me so long.
Over the last 3 years running Subbly I've spoken with 100's if not 1000's of businesses on the phone and learnt tons and shared my knowledge with them too.
I've been intending to do this for a while. Hey... we're not all perfect like you pal... BUT it's time for me to share my knowledge, learnings, musings, and anything I feel that's worth sharing.
But what will you write about Stefan?
I'm glad you asked new friend.
- Startups (specifically Saas and Subscription Box businesses)
- Growth (With a good sensible dose of Psychology and product)
- Bootstrapping (I'm a huge believer of this)
- Zebra's not Unicorns
- Life (Philosophy & Relationships)
- Tips & Tricks for kicking ass
That sounds a lot and looks it after listing it out. Maybe I need to get more specific? (Feedback welcome... which brings me onto)
Talk to me, what do you wanna know?
