Launch Yourself Into a Revenue-First Startup - Brent Summers
What does it mean to build a startup as an entrepreneur? In this conversation with Brent Summers, we look at some of the challenges that you'll be faced within not only validating your idea, questions you need to be asking yourself, and how to build a startup as a non-technical person, should you have a founder or just manage contractors.Brent founded and recently sold a company called Code-Free Startup, which is an online learning platform that teaches others how to build a startup using visual design tools like Bubble.is. Brent also has a website called launchingmyself.com and on that site he publishes a list of previous companies or products he's built and gives a case study on the success or failure of that. Brent took a concept from the online marketing world of building a personal brand and selling online courses, because in most cases once you put the course together, it'll continue to make money for you similar to Tim Ferris's 4-Hour Work-week concept.

The Science of Behavioral Economics & Living a Meaningful Life - Nate Andorsky
In this episode of the MindHack Podcast, Ashwin and I interview a guest who has a background in Behavioral Economics. This is admittedly one of the best conversations we’ve had so far in the process as we talk about the psychology of influencing people in positive ways. We also explore how to find meaning behind the work you do, staying humble and discussing how we often have self-limiting beliefs that prevent or stop us from really accomplishing what we’re capable of.Resources From The EpisodeLinks from the EpisodeFollow Nate Andorsky on TwitterCreative ScienceRunning Remote Conference (Promo code: “codymclain” to get 15% off)Show Notes[00:00:12] What is Behavior Economics? [00:00:21][00:01:52] And the reason that we’ve integrated this into all of the work that we do is that we have this core belief that creative science that these digital experiences whether they’re mobile apps or websites are augmented or virtual reality is really at their core human experiences.

Can you tell me a little bit about that and how that went and how that transition you into boxing.[00:05:20] You learn. I guess the perspective that we got was life. You learn a lot about life and that was before we had internet but it was like pre-internet age so internet was like a new thing.[00:06:21] I’m afraid of spiders so it was terrifying for me to see a spider bigger than my hand. It was just completely life changing in that perspective. I mean you saw him you saw like life and death and you really understood the world around you. So so did picking up your shit make boxing easier.[00:07:27] So I was bullied a little bit when I was younger I would say the ranch definitely toughened me up. It made me recognize that it didn’t matter what people said thought etc.[00:09:44] either I make this should successful or I’m going to be working at McDonald’s and I don’t think I could bear to to to do that to myself. So it really gave me only one option. And when you have no backup options all everything else just goes out the window. You nailed it.[00:37:18] It’s simply performance. You could have the most educated candidate on one hand who is going to take a salary of a hundred K or 200 K. And on the other hand you have a guy who just has some experience but he’s going to bring massive performance.Want more MindHacks? Go to https://www.mindhack.com/ for more amazing episodes.
