How to Start a Start-Up Podcast Highlights
Find others who share your passion: “We’ve all been nerds since we were younger. Tom was a co-founder of an app called Buffer... I worked at company called Zillow. We’ve all worked remotely and found it a lonely experience. It just kind-of sucked.”
Spend your time well: ”If you wake up every single day and think…’where can the things I’m doing today lead me in 5 years, you really start to prioritize what you’re going to do today.”
Network fearlessly: ”It’s crazy because I’ve been sending emails to people who I thought would never,ever, ever respond to me. But they do. People read email. People care.”
Work hard: ”It’s probably the hardest thing you’re ever going to do.”
Invest yourself: ”Sleep on some couches. Be scrappy.”
