Many successful businesses started with just one person who had a vision and the technical skills to deliver it to the world.

Popular new sites like Techmeme, Newsblur, Instapaper and Duckduckgo started out this way which makes the costs of operating much more bearable in the beginning.

Even some of the largest companies in the world like eBay and Amazon began with one tech-savvy founder. Jeff Bezos was a computer engineer who decided to leave Wall Street to start an online book store out of his garage. Amazon is now the largest online retailer in the world with a revenue of $74.45 billion in 2013.

  1. Not a coincidence that they’re all programmers, engineers or developers. So what does a marketing guy like me do?

  2. How were they able to do it single-handedly? That would make for an interesting talk and inspiration for others, I feel. Must have taken a super amount of work, regardless of their vision and talent.
