Joran Hofman

I built a website, grew it organically to 20,000 organic visitors per month. Then my idea was I'm going to lay on a beach somewhere and earn money via the website. Didn't really work out.

We wanted to control as many things about our life that we could whilst we were dealing with almost an uncontrollable growth rate.
