71: Shaan Puri, Former CEO of Bebo and Host of My First Million Podcast Square One: Conversations with the Best in Business

    • Business

This week we're talking concepts! It was awesome having Shaan Puri, Former CEO of Bebo on the podcast to chat through a number of them. Shaan and I go way back - we went to Duke together; since then we've formed a tight knit friendship as we've both gone through a number of different startup experiences as investors and operators. After selling his latest company to Twitch, Shaan set out on a host of projects: a podcast that has 2M+ downloads, a $3M rolling fund to invest in startups, an online course and a few other ventures. 

In this conversation, we dug into a bunch of concepts and frameworks both Shaan and I have learned over the years. A few of my favorites included: (1) how to pack 4 years of experience in 1, (2) knowing when to shut a project down, (3) the challenges in a business as a function of the CEO's psychology, (4) a 5 part framework for change, (5) how to get "unstuck" and (6) a 2x2 for startup ideas.

This one was a blast; Shaan's an idea machine.
