“What I really loved about starting [the Southern Amateur Grid League] was starting from scratch,” he noted. “And doing it all – managing every piece of it.”
Again, that feeling stuck. Which is how Tebaldi got to where he was at the beginning of 2017– eager, willing, and interested in making a professional move that put him in the driver’s seat.
“I got to that place though, and I thought, ‘what am I going to do that’s different,’” he recalls.
In his role with GRID, Tebaldi had learned videography and photography, both shooting and editing. Major television networks ended up airing his work. He loved that creativity.
“That’s when I realized that whatever I did, it had to be 50% creative,” he shares.
And he had an idea. Which he built.
“I built a platform – kind of like a website hosting platform – designed specifically for the solo, business owner who wears a lot of hats,” he says.
He found a lot of first-time business owners pay thousands of dollars for websites and platforms as they’re getting started; but, then they don’t know what they’ve really bought up-front or what they’ll need as the business evolves.
With his network largely in fitness, he knew this to be a real, daily struggle for gym owners.
He ended up building a platform that made everything available to a gym owner on day one without having to worry about adding on services, products, or resources. He or she could have a platform that had it all up-front – as well as the ability to “turn on” or “turn off” different features when they’re ready for them.
