Jeremy Gutsche: On Leaving a Cushy Financial Job to Start Trend Hunter
Jeremy Gutsche’s not insignificant gamble has paid off. Trendhunter.com is now the #1 trend-spotting site in the world and is closing in on a staggering one billion views. In the article, Gutsche goes out of his way to stress that an exceptional amount of hard work and devotion are what separates success from failure as an entrepreneur: "The basic model was: come home, do all the work myself until four in the morning and then begin the coding, graphic designing and all that kind of stuff for about a year-and-a-half until I started doing it full-time. By then, Trend Hunter had grown to about one million views per month. It started taking off and that allowed me to really dedicate myself full-time."
On top of his dominance of the cool-hunting medium at Trend Hunter, Gutsche is also one of North America’s most requested keynotes, speaking internationally on creativity, innovation, and, yes, following your entrepreneurial spirit wherever it leads you.
