We have a fantastic interview with two of the founders of Beaver Builder: Justin Busa and Robby McCullough. We cover the history of the company and their future plans. You should listen to this great conversation.
During our conversation with Robby and Justin, they shared the origins of the Beaver Builder product, how they got their plugin in front of customers in the early days, and the customer segment they realized they were serving.
We also discussed the challenges of growing a community around a product, how their support needs grew over time, and how they hired for support when they started growing.
At the end of the podcast, we asked Justin and Robby what we can expect from Beaver Builder in the future, and whether the developer community is finally warming up to page builders.
In our bonus content on the website and YouTube, we ask about their recent trip to CaboPress, and what benefit a business owner can get from a mastermind group or business retreat.
There’s a lot of lessons about growing a plugin business, or switching from client services to products in this episode. We certainly enjoyed it, and we think Robby and Justin did as well.

What are Your Favorite Motivation or Business Books?
To be honest, I don’t really read those kinds of books 🙂 I read a lot of fantasy and science fiction. For business related stuff and learning, I typically read blog posts and articles.
