    #1939 Why you shouldn’t feel guilty about getting into the PPE space

    #1939 Why you shouldn’t feel guilty about getting into the PPE space

    I have to be honest, even me, someone who loves entrepreneurs, had mixed feelings when I saw founders capitalizing on COVID in the early days.
    For example, I saw someone pivot to start selling hand sanitizer. I thought it was a slimey move until I NEEDED hand sanitizer. It made me realize that these people who were filling in the gaps where the big companies fell short were really doing us a service.
    Well that’s what today’s guest did as early as February. Robby Berthume is the founder of Berthume & Co, which sells hard-to-find items to deal with the COVID-19 crisis including face masks, hand sanitizer, PPE, and social distancing decals.

    #1935 Timing is everything–here’s how regular people can have incredible success

    Joining me is an entrepreneur said, “I created a good product, but if you’re going against trends, you’re rolling a boulder up a mountain.” But if you’re capitalizing on a topic or you happen to be in a topic that people are excited by, suddenly everything seems easy.
    So today’s entrepreneur is someone who decided I have to make it easy for people to find these trends. I want to make it easy for myself to do it. His name is Joshua Howarth, he is the founder of Exploding Topics which makes it easy for you to surface rapidly growing topics before they take off.
    I invited him here to talk about how he came up with the idea, what happens when you do jump on a trend.

    Josh Howarth is the founder of Trennd.co which is an app that monitors Google Trends.

LET THEM TALK

If you have these people on your show to interview THEM, you should probably let THEM talk a bit more. Don’t ask them a question and the continuously cut them off partway through their answers. It’s insufferable. Unfortunately I just have to unsubscribe because there are plenty of the same type of podcasts out there with respectful hosts.

There really is some good info and great guests though, would give 2.5 stars if I could. Too bad the host is so terrible.

Alright

I think it will be nice to put names in information and your like a disrespectful interview.

Spooksmus ,

Valuable

Asks the right questions, interviews interesting people, and shows a lot of enthusiasm. Only thing I would say is he needs to do better at not continually cutting off his interviewees- it’s not only annoying to the listener but I can tell it irritates the interviewer as well. Overall great podcast.
