    Half marathons and running events with solo entrepreneur Robbie McClung

    Half marathons and running events with solo entrepreneur Robbie McClung

    Have you ever thought about putting on a music festival? What about launching a mass participation running event in your town? Robbie McClung has done both.


     


    Robbie bootstrapped his business while working a series of jobs which is an approach we highly recommend here at the podcast. We learn how he did it, and how he survived COVID and came out in a position to do amazing in the coming year.


     


    If you are interested in mass participation sporting events then check out my series of two interviews with Chris Robb who is an absolute legend in this area.


     


    Gerbz is a developer and entrepreneur who's done over 10k crypto transactions with e-commerce customers since 2013. He co-hosts The BitLift Podcast, which helps people responsibly navigate their way down the crypto rabbit hole.

    Talking Crypto with GERBZ

    Talking Crypto with GERBZ

    Since I first heard about Crypto in 2012 I have been completely fascinated with the subject. There are so many rabbit holes you can go down; the tech side, the philosophical side which inevitably leads you to question ‘what is money?’.


     


    This week I am joined by GERBZ, a very interesting player in the crypto space who runs the website https://bitlift.com/ which has some amazing resources to learn about crypto. I wanted to get GERBZ on the pod initially to give some concrete advice for people running live events so we start off by talking about how event producers can take payment in crypto.


     


    We then freestyle about how GERBZ sees the future of crypto and the internet and stay tuned to hear his ‘end of 2011 price prediction.’


     


    Gerbz is a developer and entrepreneur who's done over 10k crypto transactions with e-commerce customers since 2013. He co-hosts The BitLift Podcast, which helps people responsibly navigate their way down the crypto rabbit hole.

    Martin Stoila - What happened with EventsFrame

    Martin Stoila - What happened with EventsFrame

    As long-term listeners may know, back when I started this podcast I launched a software system for event organizers to sell tickets called EventsFrame. To be honest, my main inspiration to start this podcast was in the hope of promoting it…. but that led to me really enjoying podcasting and the podcast has outlived my involvement with EventsFrame :)


     


    Enter Martin. Martin is a serial entrepreneur living in Prague who I’ve known for many years. We used to be part of a weekend mastermind where a group of us would go off for a weekend to different towns and cities in the Czech Republic, book a conference room in a hotel and try to help each other out, followed of course by several beers in the evening. On one of these weekends, I was talking about how hard it was to juggle the software business with my events business and Martin said ‘why don’t I take it over’. The rest is history and Martin joins me on the pod today to talk about running an events software company during the worst time for live events in our lifetime!
