Kyle Racki, in his own words, was “raised in a cult”. As the son of devout Jehovah’s Witnesses, he was indoctrinated—and expected to indoctrinate others—from an early age.
“By age four, I was accompanying my parents as we went door-to-door handing out pamphlets to strangers.
By age seven, I was giving 5-minute prepared sermons to the entire congregation.
By the time I was in my early twenties, I was giving hour-long sermons every month.
Eventually, I woke up and left the cult for good.”
Today, Kyle is the CEO of Proposify, a healthy, profitable, and rapidly growing business that makes it easy to create beautiful proposals. Kyle’s circumstances were never ideal, and we can all learn from his approach. We talked to Kyle on the Grit Daily Startup Show about that journey, and how he’s built a successful business from almost nothing.
