For Johnathan Grzybowski, inspiration comes from fulfilling a need. And this scientific approach to creativity is evident in how he launches a new initiative in his business—by asking customers what they want and testing each hypothesis prior to launch.
Johnathan is the cofounder of Penji, a software-as-a-service subscription platform that offers marketing teams access to unlimited graphic design support. Penji was born out of his calling to create job opportunities for entrepreneurs in underserved communities, and the business’ customer base includes national brands like Reebok, 902 Brewing Company and World Market, among many others. He also serves as the host of the #1 business podcast, The Blind Entrepreneur, a show designed to offer entrepreneurs insight around profitability, business development and growth hacking, so they can execute on their vision.
Today, Johnathan sits down with Emerald to share the inspiration for his podcast and explain how his business was built around fulfilling his own need.

Listen in for Johnathan’s insight on implementing a management overview to stay committed and on course—and learn his scientific approach to testing a creative idea with prospective customers before you launch!
