    Before you go on with the episode we wanted to point you to a great offer Emmet is giving our listeners - Emmet has launched the 'Horizon' project where he shows members what is in his personal portfolio as well as member only pitches on stocks he believes will beat the market. 

    'This Thursday, I will pitch one of the most certain potential long-term winners I’ve seen.

    This company is founder-led, unheard of by 99.9% of people, covered by only a handful of Wall Street analysts, is capital-efficient, pumps out cash and has an almost unmatched formula for growth. 


    I’m looking forward to pitching it most especially because I’m looking forward to owning it. '"

    Emmet is offering listeners 35% off the regular price this week. 

    Details here (https://web.mywallst.com/horizon/horizon-summer-sale-2022-250-off?_cio_id=aeba0601ce30ff9a02&utm_campaign=horizon-25%25-sale---go-live-email&utm_content=horizon-25%25-sale---go-live-email-v2&utm_medium=email&utm_source=cio).

    SharkPod #107 ”The Shy Baby Gets No Sweets” - Rob Halligan - Co-Founder and COO of PitchedIt

    SharkPod #107 ”The Shy Baby Gets No Sweets” - Rob Halligan - Co-Founder and COO of PitchedIt

    What is Up SharkNation! 

    On this episode the guys chatted to Co-Founder of Pitchedit - Rob Halligan. 

    PitchedIt provide tech founders with a platform to validate ideas, raise capital and connect with service providers who can help execute their vision, so they can launch better products, faster.

    Rob left his job in SFDC to concentrate on the business full time just one month ago. On the SharkPod we love chatting to entrepreneurs who have just taken the leap - we hope to have a followup episode in a few years to see how Rob's getting on. 

    Key Takeaways: 

    1. Go all in: A wise man once said that no man can serve two masters. In order for people to invest in your idea - you have to be all in. 

    2. Scratch the itch: If you are working for a large company with a great salary and perks it can be easy to deny the urge to strike out on your own... for a while... in the end you're likely to do it anyway so why not now? As Mark Baker always says..."Nature vs Nurture... Nature always wins....". Make your plans - build out a worst case scenario 'come back plan' if the business fails and just f'ing do it!

    3. Don't be afraid of complexity: Rob has a job on his hands... anything that has money involved will have regulations... Anything you build where a thriving community is key it will be difficult to build - but these difficulties build moats around your business - creating real barriers to entry for would be competitors.
