Ep 199:

Interview with Josh Dorkin, founder of Bigger Pockets

5 years ago Joshua joined us in episode #35 to talk about his company Bigger Pockets. Back then it was just a 1-person company that was showing signs of potential growth but fast forward to 2017 and the company is crushing it. Bigger Pockets is the largest online community for residential and commercial real estate investors/owners that provides access to information, forms, potential deals, building relationships, interviews, success stories, private chat and of course their insanely popular Bigger Pockets podcast. Bigger Pockets is based in Denver, is growing rapidly in terms of people and revenue, just moved into some office space and is still bootstrapped.

In this interview I chatted with Joshua about the company's growth over the past 5 years, what decisions he made that got things really moving, what have been the biggest challenges, why has the company remained bootstrapped, how much larger is the community today than 5 years ago, when did they launch the podcast and how large is the audience, any tips for building a podcast audience, how does Bigger Pockets make money, what is the Denver startup scene like, is he able to find the right talent for his team, what advice does he have for other founders who might be bootstrapping and much more.
