    “It was very clear to us that not only was the result better when we were doing test-driven development, but we were more fulfilled in our work.” –Chad Pytel

    On today’s episode, Albert is joined by Chad Pytel, developer, founder, and CEO of thoughtbot, a design and development consultancy that brings digital product ideas to life.

    Building a company from the ground up isn't easy, and Chad had hit a lot of roadblocks on his journey — especially losing his original co-founders. But the hardships didn't discourage him. Today, Chad has created immense success for himself by co-authoring books such as Rails AntiPatterns and Pro Active Record, presenting at conferences around the world, and growing thoughtbot from nothing into a 100-person consultancy on track to generate $20MM in revenue this year.

    On this episode of Mission Daily, Chad discusses how he was able to build his company from the ground up, the lessons he learned as a first-time founder, and the risks he was willing to take in order to be successful.
