Brandon Pearce is the founder of Music Teachers Helper, a SaaS application that's helping thousands of music teachers around the world manage their studio. It lets them handle everything from billing and lesson schedules to automatic reminders and even tax reports.
I first came across my Brandon in 2012 when I read his story in a book called The $100 Startup by Chris Guillebeau. He started the business with almost no money in 2004 and within a few years, the business was generating almost $30,000 in MRR.
So he decided to sell his home and belongings in Utah and moved with his wife and 2 young daughters to Costa Rica (where his third daughter was born). And in the past 6 years, they've visited over 30 countries, while still building his business.
