    Why Every Kid Should Be a Startup Founder

    Why Every Kid Should Be a Startup Founder

    In today’s Startup Therapy Podcast, Wil and Ryan discuss why it’s important to teach kids about entrepreneurship. You know what they say - better to start them young. Teaching about how to become a founder to kids as young as 10 years old will be an eye-opening experience. At this age, kids still have that pure mindset where they think they can do anything, and it’s important to nurture that. Planting the seed early on will bear fruit that will also be able to teach the future generations.

    How Big of a Failure Can I Survive as a Founder?

    How Big of a Failure Can I Survive as a Founder?

    In today’s Startup Therapy Podcast, Wil and Ryan discuss how founders can survive a failed Startup. For some founders, when they experience failure, they immediately think that it’s the end, that it’s a complete failure. But one thing's for sure though – we will all get over it. Failure has always been a part of the process and it will teach us valuable lessons along the way. And it also gives us the most important ammunition: a chance to start again.

    Why Are All My Founder Friends Ahead of Me?

    In today’s Startup Therapy Podcast, Wil and Ryan discuss the problem of comparing yourself with other founders. Sometimes, we look at the success of others and immediately think we’re falling behind.

Remember, success is a process, and we go through it in different phases.

    Are Startup CEOs Really CEOs?

    In today’s Startup Therapy Podcast, Wil and Ryan discuss if startup CEOs can really be considered as CEOs. The CEO title bears a lot of responsibility – it’s a nice title to have alongside your name but the question is, are you qualified to have it? It’s easy to get the title, in fact, anyone can become one but do you have the right qualifications and enough experience to be called a CEO?

    Founders, We Have SO Much Time Left In Our Careers

    Founders, We Have SO Much Time Left In Our Careers

    In today’s Startup Therapy Podcast, Wil and Ryan discuss how founders should not feel like they are running out of time – because they’re not. Most young entrepreneurs feel that they should rush things just because others seem to be doing well in life already and they’re feeling left behind. Everyone has their own timeframes and maybe this year is just not your year, and that’s okay, because you still have a lot of time left in your career.

Shawnie Fresh ,

You should be listening

I want to be efficient in this review, these guys are young bright intelligent and spot on with almost every topic that they talk about. I have been listening for a few weeks now and it has helped me analyze what I’m doing how I’m doing it and why.

In building any business you need more information than what’s in your own brain and these guys Will provide that.

One day I hope to thank him personally
