Join hosts Dan Hulton and Steven Abadie on their journey to create Modest Products and improve their lives. What is a Modest Product? Well, it's something like an anti-unicorn... You know what? Why not just tune in and find out!
23 - Not Everything Has To Be a Side Hustle
This week, we spend most of the episode talking ourselves out of turning hobbies into side hustles, and explore WHY that urge is so strong these days.
22 - Data and Taxes
Two things are sure in life - having a difficult time finding good public data sets for AI analysis, and figuring out how to safely and accurately pay taxes in foreign countries!
21 - Bill and Ted Talk Politics
A little bit about Steven's and Dan's plans, and a whole lot about The Basecamp Situation.
20 - The Island of Misfit Business Ideas
In the classic Rankin/Bass Christmas special, the Island of Misfit Toys was full of toys that were actually perfect for different girls and boys than originally intended. This week, Steven and Dan discuss some misfit business ideas that aren't bad, per se, just aren't for them, and why.
19 - Takin' a break
We're taking a short break! As we evaluate new business ideas, we wanted to give those ideas some room to breathe without trying to force them into easily-digestible podcast bites each week. We hope to be back in early May with fresh ideas, topics, and conversation!
18 - The change-up!
The format for the show is changing! We still talk about our Modest Products, but this week also features: rye vs bourbon, drastic haircuts, and very screamy metal bands.
Dan Martell is great!
But so is the opposite of Dan Martell, and that’s this podcast, to which I have to stop referring in my head as A Modest Proposal. I like the philosophy and the approach, and I like the guys and their micro business ideas. Excessive deep thinking and calling my employer’s products as sad or haunted — always a plus!
Also, I just noticed, the recommendation engine puts this podcast next to Tim Ferris, Gary V., and other powerhouses of the bygone era. So Apple Podcast seems to know something I don’t know. Huh!
