Derrick Reimer from SavvyCal - Can You Regain Your Confidence After Failing?

How do you regain your confidence after launching a failed product? How can you transition from wearing all the hats in a business to delegating tasks? Why is it so important to save your most productive time for your most valuable work?

Derrick Reimer is the founder of SavvyCal, a tool for scheduling meetings that both you and the people you are scheduling with will love. He's also the co-founder of Drip, a marketing automation tool, and he is the host of the Art of Product podcast. 

I have long enjoyed using an app to schedule my meetings. For example, I scheduled meetings with my coaching clients. Rather than going back and forth with endless emails, trying to find a mutually convenient time. I just send people a link so they can book a slot on my calendar. I had been using a different tool, but recently I discovered SavvyCal and it's so much more enjoyable to use. So I looked into who created it and I ended up on Derrick's Twitter account. I learned that Derrick had co-founded Drip, which was one of the first apps I used years ago when I was first building my online business. And I have very fond memories of Drip, even though I no longer use it because Drip went into a different direction. 

Anyway, I was interested to hear Derrick’s story—and it turns out there were quite a few ups and downs.

  • Regaining your confidence after launching a failed product
