I listened to this, and here's the information I retained:
Ya can't print the Monopoly man.
Do something that you have a monopoly on; which- the Monopoly man is a weird example of that, cos they have a trademark on it.
Doing the work yourself is being freelance, and the most sensible way to expand a business is to stop doing the work yourself, and industrialize it.
^This is one way to be an entreprenuer, but not the only way.
People can spend a long time getting their ducks in a row, and you don't have to do that; which sounds like a dangerous piece of advice to take.
So I'm not crazy-excited here, but y'know, I'll give it a couple more episodes. I AM a complete business dumbass.
Side-note though: That music's not helping. It's the kind of music someone would use on like a video-resume or an in-company powerpoint slideshow. It just evokes that we're all having a really boring time.
the music only seems to be on the intro, so it didn't bother me much at all.
i retained a lot more from ep1 and was super excited to listen to ep2 which was also great. it is really refreshing to hear smart content, cuz there is just too much noise out there regarding startups...
