Amazing things Bolis's made
Aside from Argentum, I've previously built a multi-media startup. We had a regular customer base, a great team, and a physical studio space. The studio was 2,000 square feet, with a full video production facility, photography suite, and music recording studio.

This business was an excellent learning experience for me, I was able to work with partners, manage a team of creatives, acquire customers, and produce content.

The biggest take-away lesson from this business was focus. We built the business horizontally, adding too many services. We should have focused on a single vertical until it could be automated, before moving onto the next vertical.

The business model proved difficult to scale, so I eventually liquidated the business to go full force on a business with higher growth potential, Argentum.
