Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Dr. Dave Matters, Founder of Shag Longer, located in San Diego, CA, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
My business is a wellness site that promotes men and women making love better. My target audience are couples with problems in the sheets because of ED or PE problems.
Tell us about yourself
I studied herbs and natural remedies at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Services and suffered from PE. I know how much of a struggle it is for men and couples, so I dedicated my life to helping men and women enjoy making love.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Receiving emails and notes from visitors who read my content and improved their sex life. It is fulfilling! Making love is an important part of any relationship. I'm glad I get to help couples rediscover how much connection and fun sex can be.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
The hardest thing that comes with being a business owner is dealing with the ups and downs of running a business. Sure, what I do is kind of taboo, but really, it is fulfilling to help men and women enjoy sex again. I keep that in the forefront of my head when things get tough. I'm assisting couples in building deeper, more fulfilling relationships.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Follow your passions - really, it doesn't feel like work when you are doing what you love. It sounds cliche, but it is really true.
- Don't quit - it sounds simple, but the only way to prevent failure is to NOT quit. If you keep working at it, pivoting, and growing, you won't fail. It'll be impossible.
- Enjoy yourself - It's all about the journey. Having fun and building something. Don't take yourself too seriously!
