TMBA432: Finish Big – A Conversation with Bo Burlingham

TMBA432: Finish Big – A Conversation with Bo Burlingham post image

Dan and Ian announced on last week's podcast that they are publishing a new book about the things they wished they had considered before they sold their business.

In researching the topic, they were shocked to find that there were so few people writing stories about selling businesses and that the majority of those books were simply focused on trying to get a fair price for your business.

Today's guest is Bo Burlingham. Bo is the author of several books, including a book called Finish Big, which Dan and Ian both wish they could have read before selling their own business. Bo is also a journalist, with over 30 years of experience as a writer and editor at Inc. Magazine.

On today's episode, Bo shares his stories about interviewing entrepreneurs who have exited their businesses and explains why he believes that there is much more to the process of selling a business than a simple monetary transaction.

Dan and Ian have some very exciting news to share on today's podcast.

Longtime listeners know that the two of them spent several years growing a business that they eventually sold. They have also spent countless hours on this show speaking to other entrepreneurs who have changed their lives by growing and selling their own businesses.

Because of this, they have decided to share their unique personal experience on this topic in the form of a new book, which Dan has recently completed writing.

They didn't choose to write this book as a business venture, though. They were driven by the idea that any entrepreneur can make these kinds of life-changing business deals if they are equipped with the right knowledge.

On today's episode, you will hear all about their decision to write this book, what that experience was like, and how you can be one of the first people to read it.

TMBA430: The Philosophy Of Crypto

TMBA430: The Philosophy Of Crypto post image

A few weeks back, Dan and Ian shared an in-depth conversation about cryptocurrency.

That podcast featured Greg Gerber, who spoke about the basic things that you need to know about Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other digital currencies.

The response to that podcast was fantastic, and we thought we would follow up on the topic by inviting our longtime friend, and cryptocurrency enthusiast, Taylor Pearson back on to the show.

Taylor's recent article "Why Is Bitcoin Valuable" was recently featured on the front page of Hacker News.

On today's show, Taylor joins us to talk about that article, and to share his insights on the philosophy behind this new technological movement.

This episode isn't all philosophical, though. Taylor also shares some great tips about how you can dip your toes into the crypto space if you are so inclined.

Every once in a while a podcast episode jumps out at me and grabs my attention.

His conversation with Hulk Hogan is an excellent example of his style). Anyway, Scooter is most...
