It took a long time for Erik and Array Digital to get to $1 million, and that was only after a merger of two companies. In total, it took 10 years for Erik to go from $0 to $1 million in annual revenue.
Only 4% of companies make it to $1 million in annual revenue. So a whopping 96% of companies never make it to $1 million, but want to. Knowing that statistics, when Erik recently spoke to a group of newer entrepreneurs titled, he titled his talk: Journey to $1 Million.
That talk will become the basis for a book that Erik plans to publish in 2020. To help work through the stories and clarify the lessons learned, Erik has created a table of contents about Array Digital’s journey to $1 million.
Future episodes of this podcast will expand on that table of contents and flesh out the details of each of the steps, and missteps, along the way. He’ll recount the learnings acquired, sometimes painfully, during the journey. Those recordings will then serve as inputs into the writing that will be done for the book.
