Transcript What is Raidspawn? I'll be completely honest, at the moment, I wholly and honestly do not know. The path leading up to this point has been long, winding and most definitely tough. The original image was of an online hub where gamers could come together as a brand new community and find everything they needed about their latest video game. Evidently, that is not what Raidspawn has become yet and large corporations with huge budgets are already setting their targets on that. As an example, just a couple of months ago I reported on the Raidspawn Video Game News Podcast that Microsoft, yes Microsoft, the owner of Xbox and Windows, were launching Game Hubs on their Xbox Platform as a place containing everything a gamer would need relating to the each title. Of course, I could foolishly look at that as proof of concept and continue plodding on, yet with all of this new knowledge, that doesn't seem like the right thing to do. I have read Sun Tzu's The Art of War and I still haven't scratched the surface of it's teachings, yet one that often pops into my head is the lesson to fight the enemy where they aren't. This one sticks out to me right now and is bouncing around in my head telling me that I should pivot away from this goal and search deeper. During his time at the Toyota Motor Corporation, Sakichi Toyoda created a process known as the Five Whys. This process was later presented to the entrepreneurial community most famously by Eric Ries, author of The Lean Startup, which is where I first heard about this approach a few years ago. This technique is extremely powerful and many believe it was one of the primary factors in Toyota's success in the automobile industry, allowing them to progress and innovate at an unmatched level of efficiency and excellence. Here is a clip from the Harvard Business Review YouTube channel, which features Eric Ries explaining the technique and providing an example. If you would like to watch the entire video, there will be a link included in the show notes at Raidspawn.com/J2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JmrAkHafwHI While I have known about this powerful technique for quite a while and is something I have explored from time to time, I hadn't yet applied it to this business and I think

J1 – Ground Zero
Sponsors This episode is sponsored by Bluehost (http://www.raidspawn.com/bluehost). Transcript Most people start a business podcast after successfully running a million dollar business, honing their expertise and then discovering a passion to help the world. I know this because I spent the last few years consuming every episode that a lot of the world’s greatest entrepreneurs published. I want to start this episode and show by thanking Pat Flynn of Smart Passive Income, Jeremy and Jason of Internet Business Mastery, Noah Kagen of AppSumo, John Lee Dumas of Entrepreneur on Fire and Gary Vaynerchuk of Vaynermedia for their wealth of knowledge and business information that they have released for free. I would also like to apologize for misunderstanding and making almost every mistake they set out to help entrepreneurs avoid. In the word's of Megamind: "There's a benefit to losing: You get to learn from your mistakes." Before we get started, let's just touch on the format I have elected to use for this show because it is unlike anything you have ever heard before. I always wanted to provide a great podcast for the entrepreneurs of tomorrow, yet wanted to give something different than a run of interviews with successful business people. I have nothing against that, yet a lot of great podcasters already have that spot filled. Secondly, after listening to the first season of Alex Blumberg's wildly popular and amazing show Startup, I was re-inspired to make this show. There is no doubt that Blumberg's storytelling style has inspired my work and for that I thank him. Startup is one of the best business podcasts I have ever listened to, which is focused around Silicon Valley startups and their success stories as they battle through the tower of titanic tasks they face. Journey, from a story mixed with timely and useful insights perspective is similar while focused on a completely different audience, in a completely different style. This is the event-by-event story of an entrepreneur, myself in fact, who doesn't have a bunch of startup capital, who has been taking action and slugging it for years and who does this while working a full-time job. Hopefully, that story sounds all too familiar, yet it is one that often goes untold. Throughout the story, I had planned to sprinkle in first-hand interviews with entrepreneurs as to show you the knowledge you need to grow your own business from the ground up, yet my barrage of interview requests often came back in the
