#15: Startups on the Side with Toni Gemayel

toni

Toni Gemayel has a lot going on. That’s an understatement, actually. He’s a web developer for Two Giraffes (which features another Freelance Jam guest, Sean Farrell). He’s a full-time “startup scout” for Coloma Ventures which involves regular travel. He’s also someone who launches a lot of startups on the side, including ventures such as Fonadu.

How does Toni find the time to wear all these hats? What are some ways that we as freelancers can launch startups on the side of our freelancing day jobs? At what point do you pull the plug on a side project that just isn’t making any money? We ask these questions and more in this episode.
