Today’s guest’s name is Cody McLain. Cody is a serial entrepreneur. He’s in his late 20s and has already sold multiple businesses. At the age of 15, he started a web hosting company and grew it up to $600,000. Unfortunately, he partnered with an individual involved in penny stocks who defrauded Cody in his business and he lost it all.

Cody then started another venture, grew it, sold it, and had an entire period of reflection where he was trying to figure out what it means to live a life of happiness. Who did he want to be now? He was searching for his ‘why’ and went on to start multiple other ventures including his current company, SupportNinja, that has over 200 employees and $4 million in revenue.
