=== SUMMARY === 🚨🚨🚨

Co-founder and CEO of FreshBooksMike McDerment, joins us on this episode of the Making Bank podcast! Today, we discuss the path to entrepreneurship, growing your company, the importance of work culture and much more.  

After accidentally saving over an invoice, Mike developed an accounting software for the self-employed professionals from his parents’ basement. Since 2003, over 24 million people have used FreshBooks to expediate and simplify their billing process. FreshBooks offers a simple but powerful accounting software, that now ranks number two for accounting software in America. 

In this episode, we cover a variety of topics, such as the obscure and sometimes random path to becoming an entrepreneur. While many entrepreneurs begin at a young age with a passion for business, this route to success has only very recently come into mainstream career conversations. We speak on the effects of this, and how Mike learned to navigate the world of venture capital investors, scaling, and product design. He also covers his experience with transitioning to virtual work, as well as his free, short book, “Breaking the Time Barrier,” which has been read by over a quarter million people. He imparts a wealth of knowledge that any young start up or aspiring business owner needs to hear.
