Shawn Riegsecker is the founder of Centro, a company that makes the buying and selling of online media easy. Last year, Shawn’s company pulled in $116 million in revenue.
But things weren’t always that good. Shawn started the company back during the recession in 2000. He was drowning in debt, behind on rent, and his office consisted of a desk, chair, blanket and pillow in a server room.
In this interview, Shawn shares how he started Centro during a recession and how he kept himself motivated during those trying early days.
