Dagobert Renouf

Intro

Dago Renouf is the founder of Logoloy, a logo and brand design service that he started with his wife, doing around $3k MRR. He started building Logoloy around September 18, then launched in April 20. It wasn't until May 21 that Dago discovered a marketing channel that worked for him - Twitter. As of writing he's absolutely relentless on Twitter, now with almost 10k followers. He's the bootstrapping meme king for sure.

Note - this is our first time speaking so it could be a more exploratory episode than I usually do.
