With the help of our friend Taylor Pearson from, we are continuing our 5 part series. The first episode was about making that first $1,000 of income. This episode is all about the next phase of a business, where you are starting to make a living, but you’re trying to figure out how to scale that and turn it into a real asset. We’ll talk about how we got out of our jobs and built a business, how long we were living broke for and the fundamental difference between building yourself a job and a business.

Listen to this week’s show and learn:

  • Why you should be building in as much margin as you possibly can in the beginning.

  • How to structure your business to focus on the pipeline.

  • Why you should be more like Dilbert.

  • When and how we decided to hire our first employee.

  • What it means to “Optimize for Interesting” and why you should be doing it.

  • The benefits of living broke.
