Starting out as an entrepreneur can be scary – but it’s exhilarating and rewarding too. In the first part of series of episodes about the ‘different stages of the entrepreneurial journey’, Dan and Ian revisit some advice they gave Kiri Masters who, in 2013, was still in her day job as a highly successful corporate player whilst struggling to set up a business that would give her the lifestyle and kind of satisfaction that she felt she was missing.

What advice did Dan and Ian give Kiri? Did she follow it? What’s happening with her business today?


Listen to this week’s show and learn:

  • How Kiri got the idea to start her first business making DIY lampshade kits. (5:03)
  • Why she decided to quit her lucrative day job to follow this dream. (7:30)
  • What kind of advice we gave to Kiri about her business two years ago. (9:10)
  • Whether she ended up taking our advice and what has happened to her business since. (14:30)
  • Where Kiri hopes to be two years from now. (21:47)

  • Kiri Masters

    Looking forward to hearing & watching your story unfold too, Nate :)

  • Hey Kiri, great to hear your story and well done for taking the plunge and going after your entrepreneurial dream. I quit my day job at the beginning of the year to make my online business my full time gig – I love it and I’ve never regretted making that decision! Thanks for sharing this with us Ian and Dan.

  • The bossman’s biz-nass instincts, sharp as ever! Love you guys! Awesome story @kirimasters:disqus

  • Its great to hear a follow-up on a podcast episode I first listened to while cleaning a railing on a sail yacht. I’ve since switched careers and am building a biz managing Amazon accounts for American SMB. Very cool to hear from Kiri who is doing something so similar! Eager to check out your site.

  • Kiri Masters

    Very cool, Brent! Launching products on Amazon is definitely an in-demand skill set.

  • Kiri Masters

    Yeah buddy!
