Anthony Eden of DNSimple


Today, I’m talking with Anthony Eden, the Founder and CEO of DNSimple where they offer simple, secure domain management.

Not only is Anthony and his team doing well into 7-figures a year of revenue, but they’re completely bootstrapped, fully remote, and only have 12 employees.

Staying lean as a growing remote company is incredibly challenging and in our chat today Anthony walks through what makes DNSimple such an effective company.

We cover how they handle management and meetings, where they’ve used automation to become more efficient, and how they use OKRs to keep everything on track.

I can’t speak for you, but Anthony and his team have built the sort of company I aspire to build because they strike an amazing balance between growth, profitability, and having a life along the journey.

It was great having the opportunity to pick Anthony’s brain and I know you’ll get a lot out of it, too.
