Insights and Observations on Starting a Business

The life of an entrepreneur is always changing, but after 15+ years in the business, you can expect to learn a thing or two.

Josh is a self-proclaimed “maker” who “can’t stop making things.” As a blogger, you can probably relate. You can’t stop posting, stop photographing, stop social media-ing.

Josh has 50+ projects and businesses under his belt, and he’s here today to share a few of the insights and observations he has learned along the way. From advice about whether you should have a painkiller or a vitamin business to whether or not it makes sense to strive towards perfection, you’ll learn all about the lessons Josh has learned to help him build a $1M+/year business.

In this episode, Josh shares:
  • When he became an entrepreneur
  • What Baremetrics is
  • Why his customers cancel
  • His insights and observations for starting businesses
  • Why you should ignore data early on
  • The difference between a painkiller and a vitamin in business
  • How to care for yourself as an entrepreneur
