We interview hard to reach entrepreneurs. (Mark Cuban, Tim Ferriss, Sophia Amoruso, Tony Robbins, Barbara Corcoran, Gary Vaynerchuk, & many more).

Unlike most podcast interview series Nathan Chan literally started from knowing nothing. He was just an average guy working in a 9-5 job he utterly hated. He knew nothing about entrepreneurship, nothing about startups, nothing about marketing, and nothing about online or how to build a business. So from launching Foundr Magazine he's gone out and spoken to some of the most successful entrepreneurs and founders in the world to find out exactly what it takes to become a successful entrepreneur, so YOU can learn from them.

Why this podcast? Because we're asking the same questions you want to know as an entrepreneur on their journey to building an extremely successful business. We're on the front-lines facing the daily battles you are. How do I get more customers? How do I scale my business? I want to start a business, but just don't know where to start? How did this person get millions of customers and make millions of dollars and have a such a massive impact on the world?

Some of these entrepreneurs are very well known, and some not known at all and that’s the cool part! Here we will share with you our best interviews from Foundr magazine showcasing this persons processes, failures, critical lessons learnt and actionable strategies showing YOU how to build a successful business. This is NOT your AVERAGE everyday entrepreneurship podcast.

We've also interviewed many successful game changing podcasters like Jim Kwik, Pat Flynn, Lewis Howes, Jordan Harbinger, Joel Brown & many more!

    Listen to learn:
    What happens if you punch your boss in the face (Dalio has first-hand experience in this!)  Doing business in the 1980s and what it’s taught Dalio about today’s entrepreneur space Why losing everything and hitting rock bottom is one of the best experiences a person can have The inspiration behind Dalio’s book Principles: Life & Work  The secret formula to the ideal composition of a founding team  Decision-making frameworks that built a billionaire What transcendental meditation is and why Dalio meditates daily Reddit, Robinhood, Cryptocurrency, and the changing face of entrepreneurs  What Dalio is searching for on the ocean floor with Ocean X 


    Ray Dalio is the founder of the world’s largest hedge fund, Bridgewater Associates, and is the author of the new book Principles: Life and Work.

    364: The $100B Cereal Entrepreneur: Joe Gebbia of Airbnb

    364: The $100B Cereal Entrepreneur: Joe Gebbia of Airbnb

    How do you raise capital for your startup?

    Well, if you ask the co-founder of Airbnb Joe Gebbia, he’ll tell you what worked for him: 
     
    Cereal. 
     
    That’s right, the company that started with a single air mattress and grew to a $100 billion empire was kept afloat by selling custom cereal boxes. 
     
    It was bizarre but it worked. Gebbia muses in this episode of the Foundr podcast:
     
    “We made $20,000 in breakfast cereal, and we're able to basically pay off our credit card debt...The cereal, funnily enough, was how we were able to help keep the options open for us until eventually, the invitation came for Y Combinator.”
     
    In undoubtedly one of our most riveting episodes, Gebbia recounts his incredible journey from struggling to pay rent, to Airbnb’s first angel investor, to one of the biggest brands in the world and Gebbia’s incredible charity work.
     
    Gebbia is candid about how he overcame countless rejections and problems. Listen in as he shares specific advice for entrepreneurs looking to create the next industry disrupter: 
     
    “You can see what’s hot. You can go after an emerging industry... Or you can solve a problem. Your own problem. Airbnb was our own problem. We had a rent check that we couldn’t pay. And it forced us to come up with a new way of making ends meet.”
