My Reaction to the TV Commericals


#1

I was watching ESPN and got my first look at the Fiverr TV spots. Here’s a website that I was with from the beginning. I made the foolish mistake of trying to prove my worth to management by directly communicating my ideas for the future of Fiverr. I did several TV interviews and appearance on behalf of Fiverr. The site goes on to generate millions of dollars, if not billions, on my ideas. Meanwhile, my tax returns have yet to show a year where I brought home more than $10k despite doing Fiverr orders full time since 2010.



Lesson learned: Don’t build someone else’s empire.



Next phase for me is building my own network, where my ideas are at least publicly acknowledged. The crowd sourcing campaign starts soon.
