James Deer and his wife founded Gather Content, a new startup SaaS company doing just shy of $39K/mo in Revenue.
James started his career as a freelancer and built up a small client base. Eventually, he got so busy as a web designer that he had to hire a number of people. He quickly built up an agency to 13 people before he ended up selling it.
