I’m Leanne Beesley ~ a serial entrepreneur with a track record of fast growth, leading teams, and creating products people love.
I’ve done some weird shit. Getting 3000 kitchen spatulas manufactured at a factory in China, exporting them to the USA and branding them as “the sexiest spatula on earth” is a classic example.
I see technology and products as fun platforms for conducting experiments. I’ve had failures, successes and lots of lessons learned along the way. My laptop is my laboratory and I love to concoct stuff to see what works.
Here’s are some of the things I’ve learned by doing…
Design & build websites
Graphic design / Photoshop
Analytics & Data
Adwords / Display Ads
Exporting from China
Internet Marketing launches
Once upon a time, a Forbes contributor called Casey reached out to ask me some questions for an article she was writing. It was published on Forbes titled “Expats Find Fertile Ground For Bootstrapping Startups in South East Asia”.
A classy title for a classy article. I however, have a tendency to learn towards swearing and awkwardly incorrect grammar. Not to mention a penchant for catchy (read: eye rollingly cheesy) headlines.
So VOILA here’s the raw, unedited answers that didn’t make the article but give you a little insight into my story as a startup founder in South East Asia.
