The classic definition of an AppPreneur? Working the new 9-5 with Michael Hawkins of MLHSoftware

Michael Hawkins is inspired by mobile software.

I’ve spoken with many entrepreneurs in this arena now and Michael embodies that mobile adventurer who is inspired by the discovery. He has developed 6 BlackBerry applications in a very short period of time (from distractions like Solitaire and Space Ace to business utilities such as Blurts and Missed Call Alert) and has learned a lifetime of lessons while doing so.

He’s bootstrapped MLH Software using the new 9-5 (working 9pm to 5am), tactical marketing techniques, spending when only necessary and leverage the holes that are inherent in any platform.

This was a great conversation with a guy who shares my deep passion with mobile.

I hope you are inspired by Michael as much as I was.
