On this week’s episode, we are continuing one of Dan and Ian‘s favorite traditions on the podcast.

Today we are talking about books and, in particular, the favorite books that we have read in the past year.

And continuing an annual tradition, we invited our good friend and talented author Kyla Gardner to share her recommendations too.

This conversation also details how some of our reading and social media habits have changed over the last 12 months, why Kyla has started writing fiction, and much more.

  • How social media habits have influenced the ways that we read and write. (4:12)
  • The new book that Kyla is currently working on. (7:31)
  • A somewhat controversial book that critiques our modern society. (11:53)
  • Some of our favorite entrepreneurial stories we read this year. (17:39)
  • A few bonus books for those who want even more recommendations. (31:22)

In the entrepreneurial world, it’s rarely questioned that “exiting” is the end goal of a smartly built business and a prestigious waypoint in a successful career.

In 2015, Dan Andrews and Ian Schoen sold their business for multi-seven figures, and although they don’t regret selling – there are many mistakes they made that were avoidable.

The book presents thought experiments designed to help you avoid similar mistakes.

Whether you are in the early stages of building a business or thinking of selling, this book is designed to help you build with the future in mind.
