High school dropout, Chris Kelsey, is 19 years old and started Appsitude, a San Francisco based app and web development company in December 2014 (when he was 17) that has made over $6 million in revenue so far this year.
Employing 60+ staff, he’s also built many successful apps including Premium Wallpapers HD which received over 40 million downloads and did $8m revenue before it was sold in 2015.
Now you may be thinking, “What can I, the seasoned business owner, learn from a 19 year old?”
- Strategies around attracting clients
- The importance of thinking big
- How he attracts A-players into his team
- Plenty more
Plus I tackle a listener question about referencing death in their marketing, share a testimonial from a past attendee of my Philippines outsourcing tour, and I share some feedback from another listener (I have two!) who’s been touched by the two recent Orange Sky episodes.

MY TOP 3 ATTENTION GRABBERS
- Think big. Why do you have to wait a predetermined amount of time for something to happen?
- Normalise big ideas. Then believe in them. Then act on them. Then make changes when they don’t entirely work out.
- Ask this Killer Question – “What would my younger self do in this situation?” Or “How would my younger self approach the marketing of my business?”
