    This interview is unlike my typical Mixergy interview as you’ll hear in this episode.

    #2211 Crime Scene Cleanup as a business

    I was nervous to do today’s interview because my guest today has built an amazing business but it’s the kind of business that typically stays hidden.
    Laura Spaulding is the founder of Spaulding Decon, a franchised decontamination service to offer crime scene, hoarding and meth-lab cleanup.
    One of the things I find amazing about her story is how she turned this business into a media machine by leveraging social media.

    #2210 A solution for tracking and managing subscriptions

    Joining me is a guy who started out in a small mining town in India with no running water. He ended up with a job at a major American company and still wasn’t satisfied. He said, “I’ve gotta start my own business.”
    He had a failure and then a success and now he is back with yet another company. I invited him here to talk about that process.

    #2207 Become an investor with as little as $50K

    Imagine you are someone who’s deep into a sector of tech, like maybe you’re the crypto person who really studies this, who understands it has inside access to the founders, or SaaS, or some other sector. And you say, “You know what? I’d like to make an investment in a company that wants me as one of their investors, because they want me to give feedback. But you don’t wanna put in all your money.”
    Well, what you could do through VAUBAN is create a Special Purpose Vehicle, go and raise money from others, maybe smaller amounts from other people, put it together with your money, and then invest that in the company or companies that you believe in.
    That’s what they do. I want to find out how it’s possible.

Don’t miss another Mixergy podcast!

Of the dozens of podcasts I’ve tried and tested there are only two I’ve settled on listening to and Mixergy is one of them. I appreciate Andrew Warners honesty & no B.S approach, and you can see there has been a lot of thought and research put into each interview. Finally, you will be sure to take away valuable advice from these interviews which can be applied to your real life business. Keep up the good work Andrew. Stefan
