#2066 Bootstrapped in a basement; sold for $32,000,000

Today I have a guest who I have been talking to for over 10 years as he bootstrapped his company.
Francois Arbour is the founder of PremiumBeat, a curated library of royalty-free music for creative professionals.
He sold that company to Shutterstock and has gone on to do many other things. I want to know how a guy who started out in the basement became somebody so freaking good at building companies that he’s helping others do it too.
