On last week’s show, Dan and Ian talked about the many entrepreneurs finding success with productized service business. One of the reasons for this is that these businesses can be started quickly, and with little/no capital outlay.
So, for today’s episode, they have asked their friend and expert ‘ideas generator’ Tristan King of Blackbelt Commerce to return. The last time Tristan was on this program listeners took the some of ideas he donated and turned them into successful businesses (Bean Ninjas being one).
