E118: Under the Hood with Cory Stout Part 1 – Trimming Down SAAS Subscriptions

Monday, February 5th, 2018 in Podcast

We’ve released 4 Under the Hood episodes so far and we’ve been getting a lot of good comments about the segment. It seems to resonate with a large listener base, and since we’ve been really happy about your feedback, we’re bumping things up and releasing more of these episodes.

For today’s episode, we have Cory Stout of Woodies.com on the spotlight. Cory is living a nomadic lifestyle while running Woodies, and since automation is a big part of his business, he has been racking up a long list of SAAS (Software as a Service) subscriptions. Today he and I talk about his subscriptions and evaluate whether or not they’re worth keeping.

Some conversation points:

  • How Cory got into ecommerce
  • Why he sold his first business to his AirBnb host
  • The background of Woodies
  • Why he chose to sell wooden items for his second business
  • His mom’s role in his business and the “2017 Employee of the Year” award he gave her
  • His SAAS subscriptions list (spoiler alert: it’s a long one)
  • My evaluation of his SAAS subscriptions

In Part 2 of our conversation, Cory and I continue to evaluate and talk about his SAAS subscriptions. Stay tuned for Part 2 on Thursday!
