I would love to sit down with any listener who is thinking about starting a business or has a business. I'm happy to spend some time and talk to your listeners about their idea.Anybody that wants to chat with me, my email is just email@example.com
They can email me and I'll give them my calendar link so that they can book some time at their convenience. We'll sit down and figure out what you're working on. I'm happy to help.
I tell this a lot to founders, your business is a hypothesis, until someone gives you money, it's not a business. If you treat your business like a science experiment. Write down your hypothesis, collect data, be obsessed with collecting data. Put numbers on paper, numbers won't lie. If you do all that, you're gonna set yourself up for success. If you ignore the data or not be authentic about it, or if you compromise that in any way, then you're going to be in a path for failure.
