    For a while, Patrick Campbell was too embarrassed to refer to himself as CEO. 

    The company was too small.

    They didn’t generate enough revenue. 

    They weren’t funded. Or growing fast enough.

    All things that every bootstrap founder says to him or herself.

    But, in the 7 years since founding Price Intelligently, now ProfitWell, Campbell has powered through most obstacles on his way to ushering in a movement around the subscription economy, including:

    • Making $0 in year 1
    • Working through product/market fit issues
    • Running a service/consulting in paralell with your software
    • 2 bouts with cancer

    There’s a lot to learn here, both personally and professionally.
