From the Blog

From Mowing Lawns to Building a Fintech Enpire, Greg Ellis from Nimble talks "Walking in your customers' shoes"

Frustrated with the lack of loan options, Greg Ellis co-founded Nimble originally under the name "Cash Doctors" - and promptly learned a dose of empathy. The business didn’t lose money at the start, but didn’t make a lot of it either, prompting the founders to start a side business: mowing lawns. Each founder took one day off each week to supplement their income with landscaping work, and on reflection, Ellis confessed being broke helped him empathize with his customers by "walking in their shoes."
