During this insightful conversation, AJ revealed the history behind Marketcircle and the creation of Daylite and how he got his entrepreneurial spirit. He explains that, coming from a family of business owners, he longed for having his own business since he was 10 years old, and that Marketcircle and Daylite are the result of his own necessity of a platform that could organize and boost his consultation business.

AJ also shared the components for generating new ideas: understanding the product and having a challenge. He explains that he asks himself how he can manipulate the product to solve problems or challenges small business owners face, and that’s essentially how he developed his product, which is now award-winning CRM and productivity app Daylite. 

When asked about what advice he has for emerging entrepreneurs, AJ highlights the importance of recognizing that sometimes, having too many processes can create “waste”, which makes you not be able to adapt as fast as you should. 

AJ also takes the opportunity to highlight how having the right people in the right jobs goes a long way and the importance of being resilient, learning from mistakes and moving on. As a bonus, AJ also reveals how he overcomes personal challenges and shares the story of how he became resilient as an entrepreneur.
