On today’s show, Dan and Ian have decided to focus on something that has never been done on this podcast. They have interviewed many entrepreneurs over the years, but they have always wanted to document the story of a business.

This episode follows the creation of a SaaS product called Splitly: the people who started it, and those who later became involved in its evolution. You’ll hear firsthand accounts from James Andrews, Greg Mercer and Andy Brown.

It’s a story of what is possible when you put yourself among people who can not only inspire and support you, but also hold you accountable.


Listen to this week’s show and learn:

  • Why James decided that he needed to leave London. (2:32)
  • How a failed business venture in China led Andy Brown to southeast Asia. (13:05)
  • The conversation that led Andy and James to partner up on Splitly. (17:42)
  • What happened when the software behind Splitly broke almost immediately after it launched. (20:09)
  • What led James and Andy to approach Greg about partnering with them. (30:16)

  • AWESOME episode!

    Loved the journey & I remember meeting James in Davao a few years ago when he was afraid to email his list ;)

    Great to see the hustle he always had turn into SaaS success.

    Very inspirational. It was cool just to hear so many names I know well like Matt Ward. Great podcast. Hearing how different entrepreneurs intertwine in the most unlikely of places and the most unlikely of ways. I liked that we go to hear the back story pre-success. This is one of my favorite episodes in a long while.

  • cheers Martin thanks for that, would like to do a few more like this in the future.
