079: Fired by his Family... How did Brad Martineau rebound to Build a Thriving Business?
Brad Martineau is the Cofounder of SixthDivision & PlusThis. Companies that help businesses plan out and thrive on marketing automation via Infusionsoft. Brad started his business career as Infusionsoft’s sixth employee and got a front row seat in watching the company grow from just six to 150 people, and from $500,000 to over $15 million in revenue.
He saw that Infusionsoft was a great tool that helped small businesses leverage technology, but he also saw a lot of their clients struggling to implement it. In 2010, after being fired by his brother's at Infusionsoft, he started SixthDivision with the goal of that company to make it easy for people to get their automation ideas implemented so they can make more money and have more time on their hands.
