I met Ryan Buckley at MicroConf 2018. Ryan’s story is of the roller-coaster kind.

He is the founder of 3 different small SaaS that he was able to fund and code himself.

Before all that he built Scripted.com which was a venture-backed marketplace for hiring writers. It was interesting to hear the story of it, as is an industry I know something about.

He recently published a booked about the concept of Parallel Entrepreneurship. It is about running and growing different businesses simultaneously, balancing between then, doubling on your resources, and measuring the return on those investments.

Enjoy!
