Building a Tech Company Without a Tech Background | Carrie Griffith
Better Product
How do you start a tech company when you don’t have a tech background? That’s the position Carrie Griffith was in when she started Little Nugget, a baby photo app that helps parents personalize, organize and treasure their favorite moments. This week on the Better Product podcast, we’re breaking down the process of bringing a product vision to life when you’re not a ‘tech person.’ Carrie was her own user case study, yet she quickly learned the power of research and connecting with a community outside of her existing circle. So before a line of code was ever created, she spent nine months asking questions, seeking feedback, and understanding her audience. Some of the best tech companies have non-tech founders. In this episode, you’ll hear what unique advantage you may have and how you, too, can bring your product vision to life.

Building an Audience Before Your Digital Product Launches | Dave Gerhardt
Better Product
How do you build an audience when you don’t yet have a product? This week on the Better Product podcast, we’re talking with Dave Gerhardt (@davegerhardt), VP of Marketing at Drift and author of Conversational Marketing. When Dave, a.k.a “DG”, started with Drift, there was no product. Yet his first assignment was to build an audience. So, how did he do it? He started by asking questions. Just like when you go to build your product, you talk to who you think the end user is. You ask them questions, you seek to understand their pain. Then you build, or, in this case, you create the content. You’ll learn how DG focused his content to serve their future product users. In doing so, he built an established audience who already trusted Drift as a brand. So when it was time to launch the product, they already had users in place. If you feel like you’re fighting a product feature war - or just struggling with marketing in general - this episode is a must-listen.

Mi hanno rubato l'account! Cosa fare quando il tuo profilo social è vittima di un hacker
Merita Business Podcast
Cosa fare quanto il proprio profilo Facebook o il proprio account Instagram ci viene rubato da un hacker? Non ci si pensa mai, ma posso assicurarvi che i tentativi di furto di account sono tantissimi, molti più di quanti potete anche solo lontanamente immaginare. Fra l'altro, Facebook risulta essere sempre più nel mirino del cyber-crime come bersaglio privilegiato per poi commettere altri reati informatici. Insomma, una sorta di testa di ponte, che serve a commettere altri reati. Il Kaspersky Lab offre una statistica curiosa per quanto inquietante: il phishing si sta spostando dalle email ai solcial network. Infatti solo nel primo trimestre dell'anno i falsi siti che hanno riprodotto gli account Facebook sono stati il 10,8% delle segnalazioni complessive di phishing. I furti quindi capitano, non è un caso. È per questo che ho invitato Thomas Bandini a raccontare la sua storia. Due suoi clienti hanno subito un furto di account e lui è riuscito a recuperarli entrambi. Thomas Bandini è socio fondatore di una giovane agenzia che si chiama The Taylors che gestisce molti social per diversi grossi clienti, fra cui alcuni con una follower base enorme. Suo malgrado ha affrontato due furti di account e in questa puntata ci racconterà come è riuscito a restituire ai legittimi proprietari gli account.

But one caller’s question was so big, it needed its own episode. Skyler Gronholz had decided to make a podcast about starting up his life again after several years in prison. But he was anxious about making something bad, and wanted Alex’s advice. In this week’s episode, we find out: can making a podcast about your life actually change the way you live it?--If you or someone you know is struggling with substance abuse, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration has a number you can call. 1-800-662-HELP.

#187: Jocko Willink on Discipline, Leadership, and Overcoming Doubt
The Tim Ferriss Show
"Don't count on motivation; count on discipline." - Jocko Willink Jocko Willink (@jockowillink) is one of the scariest human beings imaginable. He is a lean 230 pounds. He is a Brazilian jiu-jitsu expert who used to tap out 20 Navy SEALs per workout. He is a legend in the Special Operations world. His eyes look through you more than at you. Jocko spent 20 years in the US Navy and commanded SEAL Team 3's task unit Bruiser, the most highly decorated special operations unit in the Iraq War. Upon returning to the US, Jocko served as the officer in charge of training for all West Coast SEAL teams, designing and implementing some of the most challenging and realistic -- and perhaps psychotic -- combat training in the world (his words, not mine). After retiring from the Navy, he co-founded Echelon Front, a leadership and management consulting company and authored the number one New York Times bestseller Extreme Ownership: How US Navy SEALs Lead and Win. Jocko did his first interview ever with me (find it here), and it took the Internet by storm. Now he joins us for round two to answer the questions you've been asking. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
