The biggest problem I see in the world today is education. School systems and universities are outdated, expensive, slow and non-personalized. Their single intent is to “qualify” people to get jobs.

My mission is to collectively educate every human on Earth. I aim to do this by teaching people how to teach themselves. I believe people should learn how to think, not what to think.

    74. How To Use Metrics

    Here's a quick sneak-peek into the Consulting.com Quantum Mastermind event! Listen to Sam as he answers some burning questions.

    Note: We were using a throw mic and that has resulted in some inaudible questions (whoopsie). But Sam's audio is perfectly audible throughout the session. Happy listening.

    73. Scale, Mess And Debt

    73. Scale, Mess And Debt

    Scaling a business is an awesome topic, cleaning up the mess and paying back the debt from scaling is not. This is a tricky thing to balance. Most entrepreneurs get it wrong. If you don't grow fast, a competitor might overtake you —but— grow too fast and you'll make a mess and accumulate too much debt for the company to get out of. Finding the perfect balance between these two extremes is an art-form that lies at the core of an entrepreneur's ability. This podcast teaches you how to think about three things: scale, mess, debt, and how they're all parts of the same "growth cycle". I share practical tips to handle these issues in your business today + share personal stories of the rollercoaster ride I've been on to date.
