Ep 225 - The Co-Founder of HomeRoom on When to Take Your Side Hustle Full-Time
Sometimes in entrepreneurship it can be hard to know when it is the best time to take your side hustle full-time. Sometimes you can tell and other times, it may be decided for you.
That was the case for today’s guest Michael Tich, the Co-Founder of HomeRoom. In today’s episode of Peers2Peers, powered by Shopify, Michael shares his journey of working on HomeRoom while keeping a full-time job in marketing and data science, as well as how to keep up the energy and momentum as a start-up founder.
For many of us, the pandemic brought on a life change – whether we asked for one or not. Whether it was a change of pace or a total shift in industries, millions of people experienced change.
Today’s guest was one of them. After leading marketing and data science teams managing $50-100M in annual digital marketing spend at Airbnb, Michael was laid off during the pandemic.
But, it was his experience at one of the biggest property platforms in the world that helped Michael Co-Found HomeRoom, a home-sharing app that connects users to roommates, social opportunities and a host of tech-enabled property management tools.
In this episode of Peers2Peers, powered by Shopify, Michael shares how to pivot in entrepreneurship, his data-driven approach to start-ups, and why getting real world experience can be worth more than education.
