Founder and CEO Trevor Mauch tells us how they did it (and much more) in the latest edition of the Built Oregon Podcast, hosted by co-founder and Publisher Terry “Starbucker” St. Marie.

Before starting the SaaS business Carrotly in 2013, over the past decade Trevor has started several successful businesses, mostly online based, and also invested in real estate and other businesses. The mission that drives him is creating community change on a massive scale through entrepreneurship and lifestyle, in places like Roseburg.

• Why the RIGHT mission (not just any mission) is critical to avoiding the “empty promise of entrepreneurship” that so many of us feel
