Name: Melvin Wong

Location: Seoul, Korea (South)

Type of Business:
Kodorra provides hands-on online courses on how to run your online business with minimum cost

What does your business do?
Kodorra provides hands-on online courses on how to run your online business with minimum cost. Our teaching principles are we practice what we preach and we teach with simple English (no jargons).

When and why did you start the biz?
Jan, 2018. We started it to help entrepreneurs such as those on this website to learn from our 14 years of experience being a global startup company.

How Many People are in your Company?

Where's your office?
We're based in a co-working space

What's the toughest part of running your biz?
Toughest is always getting the sales. Any experienced business person would tell you that.

What's the most fun part?
Business is fun because you get to do what you want to do, when you want to do and where you want to do it.

Anything you would have done differently?
I'd have negotiated better in my last startup acquisition. I shouldn't have listened to that speaker (can't mention the name).

What's next on the horizon for your biz?
We are offering free 6-month free access right now to all our online courses on entrepreneurship. Just enter 6MONTHSFREE discount code when checking out.

What advice do you have for others?
My advice for first-time entrepreneurs is to not repeat the mistakes below. Mistake – Afraid of Sharing Ideas Mistake – Believing You Don’t Have Any Competitors Mistake – Always Wanting to be The First Mistake – Choosing the Wrong Partner or Co-Founder Mistake – Focusing on Quantity and Not Quality Mistake – Trying to Do Everything Yourself Mistake – Forget to Get Feedback Mistake – Giving Up Too Easily Mistake – Not Thinking Global Enough Mistake – Lack of Effort (Biggest Mistake)

How do you use Idea Cafe to help your biz?
We're here to help others to grow their small businesses with the least cost possible. Funding is hard we know, thus we can show you how to save cost while maximizing growth and sales.

School (where, still in school, degree)?
Nottingham Trent University, UK. Degree in Engineering

Prior jobs or business?
Sold my first startup, an online sports games company to an American/Japanese company in 2016. Sold an online memorial website too!

Favorite Food?
Everything, really!

What are your pets' names?

Do any of these pets help with your biz?
No pets

Is there any one person or event in your life that led you to go into business for yourself?
Nothing and no one. It was my own decision.

Anyone you publicly want to thank?
Hi mom! (cliche, lol!)
