We had Amit Arora with us for episode 11 of Built in a Day to discuss his idea of bringing a hotel management course to the market.

Amit is an expert in moving up the ladder in the hotel industry and believes he can help others make the jump to general manager as well.

But before he spends $500 on advertising the course and weeks completing the content, he wanted to dip his toe into the waters. So Joe and Jevin devise an experiment to get him a little further down the road with his project.

Have a listen to see how it turned out and hopefully it will help you with your own testing.
