    TMBA532: The Middle Game

    TMBA532: The Middle Game

    We often talk about the "1,000 Day Principle" or the idea that it will take about 1,000 days to get a new business off the ground before it replaces the income from your 9-to-5.


    But what happens after those 1,000 Days?


    Chris Cage's 1,000 Day Journey has been well-documented on previous episodes of this podcast.


    Chris is the founder of Greenbelly, a company that manufactures high-quality meal bars for hikers. Greenbelly is now over 5 years old, and Chris is facing a whole new set of challenges.


    Chris joins us this week to talk about how he has handled the "Middle Game" of entrepreneurship. You'll hear about his first full-time hire, how he has created a repeatable process for getting clients, why he is taking time away from the business, and much more.

    TMBA531: A Lot Can Change In a Year

    TMBA531: A Lot Can Change In a Year

    One of our favorite things to do on this podcast is follow up on some of the entrepreneurial stories that we've covered in the past.


    This time last year, we recorded a podcast with Tommy Joiner.


    In that episode, Tommy spoke about the genesis of his productized content generation service ContentPros.


    Fast forward a year and Tommy has made some massive changes in his life. Not only has he sold ContentPros, but he also chose to part ways with his business partner.


    In today's episode, Tommy returns to explain why he decided to move on from ContentPros and to share some insights into the exit process as well.

    TMBA530: Don't Be a Victim of Your Own Success

    Entrepreneurship is something of a gamble, and perhaps very few people understand that better than today's guest.


    Mike Jackness is a widely respected figure among the eCommerce community and is the host of a brilliant podcast called ECommCrew.


    Mike has owned and exited several successful businesses, the most popular of which being ColorIt, which manufactured and sold coloring books aimed at adults.
    On today's podcast, Mike joins us to talk about the highs and lows of his entrepreneurial career.


    You'll hear how an obsession with poker turned into Mike's first major foray into entrepreneurship, how he founded and eventually sold ColorIt, and some of the biggest pitfalls that entrepreneurs face in the eCommerce space today.

    TMBA529: The Price of Progress

    TMBA529: The Price of Progress

    We here at the Tropical MBA are always fascinated with people who raise questions that challenge the social narratives that most people follow.


    It's no wonder then that Christoper Ryan caught our attention.


    Christopher is a New York Times bestselling author, the host of a brilliant podcast called Tangentially Speaking, and is perhaps best known for his 2010 book Sex at Dawn.


    Christopher recently published a new book called Civilized to Death, which argues that so-called "progress" has actually adversely affected the way we live.


    He joins us today to talk about his unconventional path to becoming a published author, and why civilization might not represent progress.

    TMBA528: The Brenwall Code

    Last week, we spoke to Mark Brenwall about why he left his job in San Francisco to move to Asia and start WOD Nation, an Amazon FBA business that sells CrossFit products.


    Today's podcast is the conclusion of that interview and in it, we speak specifically about Mark's entrepreneurial "code".


    In this conversation, Mark shares some of his unorthodox business philosophies, as well as some specific insights into the Amazon FBA platform, and why he almost decided to sell his business last year.

    TMBA527: Letting Go of Your Ego

    TMBA527: Letting Go of Your Ego

    Mark Brenwall is the founder of WOD Nation, an Amazon FBA business that sells CrossFit products.


    A few years ago, Mark joined us for one of our favorite conversations we've had on this podcast in an episode called "The Power of Under Optimization".


    That episode was all about Mark's unconventional business approach, which prioritizes lifestyle and happiness over aggressive growth.


    Today's episode is the first in a two-part series where we revisit Mark's story.


    In this first part, we explore some of the personal and professional circumstances that led Mark to leave a seemingly great life in the United States for the unknown.

Really good

Good advice. Great people. Im hooked 💎✌🏻️☕️

Kings speech.

It has to be said that these two "kids" have a point. The industrial revolution is over for westerners and new paths have to be found. Like "Broadway" in Manhattan these two podcasters break old patterns and venture out in the unknown all to our benefit. There should maybe be a Nobel prize for such achievements but until that day I will wholeheartedly give them a five star salute and wish them Goods speed. Highly recommended.

Insane amount of value

I just finished listening to all your episodes and had to thank you for providing so much value. You guys have inspired me to take action and expand my entrepreneurial mindset to a whole new level.
Your podcast is the very definition of bawler.
