The other day, I met with an accountant. I knew that she was using HelloFax, but I had never seen her use it. She opened up her computer and there it was, HelloFax on her computer. She said, “I absolutely love HelloFax. It has saved me on several occasions”.

As entrepreneurs, we spend a tremendous amount of time trying to discover what people want and then, we take a risk and build it. When you see that someone using your product, it blows your mind. There it is, a product of your work, on someone else’s computer!

Anyway, it was an energizing moment.
