What Happens When You Stop Second-Guessing & Trust Your Instincts
Aaron Epstein is the co-founder of Creative Market, an online platform that lets you sell and buy handcrafted, mouse-made design content such as fonts and graphics. He launched his first software product called ColorSchemer when he was still in college and went on to grow that into a 6-figures a year business. A few years later he met his co-founders and combined forces to work on an online creative community called COLOURlovers and eventually went through Y-Combinator. COLOURlovers grew into a community with over a million users. In 2012, they launched Creative Market and raised $2.3M dollars in funding, and about 16 months later, sold Creative Market to Autodesk for an undisclosed amount.
