Description

You can find Chris Teitzel at Cellar Door Media and Lockr.io

Here are some of the key points of our conversation:


  • Don't be afraid to reach out and go for it, big things may happen

  • Putting out good into the FOSS community always pays back, eventually.

  • The diversity in FOSS makes for stronger products.

  • Investors can be a double edge sword, spurring you on when you may want to quit and making your down times even harder.

  • Desperation and free time can breed opportunity if you're willing to take a chance.

  • The barrier between hard sciences and art is permeable.

  • Speaking at conferences before you're ready can be good for your career.

  • Launching a product in the open source space is a tight rope walk, you need to balance trust and always provide value first

  • Continuing to run services as part of your company can help keep a finger on the pulse of your customers.

  • Services can help during the lean times of your SaaS.

  • Longevity is the unsexy super power.

  • Build other people up to make a successful business.
