David Rusenko, creator of the website construction plattform Weebly, presented his products for the first times in front of almost 1,000 visitors in 2006.

"There is nothing magic about a seven-year journey," says Rusenko, pointing to the number of years that many business owners consider necessary for a business to be a success.
