Technology and Tools

Graduated with a BSc Business IT from the University of Reading, UK. Since then I've always enjoyed being on the bridge between technology and business. I've been working as a Shopify developer for the past few years, while building my business as a side project.


Content Marketing

Even though DULO is an apparel product company in its core, we like to think about it as a media company, building a long-term brand and finding our community around the idea that everyone should be working towards living on their own terms. The process involves creating multiple content pillars around the main pillar of documenting our journey. We have a blog - Origins, vlog, as well as a podcast - The Early Days podcast.


Venting Frustration

Learning or building anything can be frustrating at the beginning, but understanding that that is part of the process, being patience, putting in the work and ideally enjoying the process puts you ahead of 95% of people that are too intimated by those exact points and never start.


Bootstrapping

My experience with self-funding DULO has been a great data point into the advantages of running a bootstrapped business, how to leverage that freedom and how to make the most out of working within constraints. My goal with DULO was to build my own employer, where I will have the freedom to work on whatever I want, whenever I want from wherever I want and unless only you are paying your own pay cheques you lose the control and freedom and defeat the whole purpose of being a business owner.
