    #2067 Tax credits your startup might be missing

    I met Lloyd Lobo five years ago at a dinner  and he seemed like a super confident guy. Everything seemed like it was going his way at that time. It wasn’t until I started reading up on him in preparation for this interview that I realized how much he was struggling with his startup.
    I want to find out about that period of his life and how he turned it around.

    #2066 Bootstrapped in a basement; sold for $32,000,000

    Today I have a guest who I have been talking to for over 10 years as he bootstrapped his company.
    Francois Arbour is the founder of PremiumBeat, a curated library of royalty-free music for creative professionals.
    He sold that company to Shutterstock and has gone on to do many other things. I want to know how a guy who started out in the basement became somebody so freaking good at building companies that he’s helping others do it too.

Brilliant interview by Andrew of Max Altschuler

I never miss an interview by Andrew as he asks the questions I wish I could. His interview with Max was a stand out. If you are looking to hear stories from successful entrepreneurs that aren’t asked anywhere else on the plant, then this is the podcast for you.

Would have better if the interviewer doesn’t interrupt as much

I just found out this show and I like the deep dive questions Andrew asked his guests. However, he speaks way too fast, and he also interrupts a lot, made me feel like he was really impatient and didn’t really want to let his guests really answer the questions.
