E11 – Ryan Carson – Treehouse – Part 3 of 3

Ryan Carson, Co-Founder and CEO of Treehouse – based out of Portland, Oregon in the United States. He has a work ethic that the Basecamp boys might not agree with (long days), but he manages to squeeze in plenty of family time too. We discuss the ups and downs of building multiple startups, managing shiny object syndrome, the merits of solving all the problems yourself in the early days of your startup, setting employees up for success, how building a non-software consultancy helps you build better a better software company, balancing Treehouse’s needs with family life, the importance of routine, and a typical day-in-the-life of Ryan Carson (it starts at 4.30 am!). This interview took place in New Orleans in Collision in 2018.
