For many years, Dan and Ian have spoken about jobs on this podcast.

After all, the TropicalMBA originally started as a job listing on this website.

Jobs are an important facet of entrepreneurial life and distributed teams are a huge part of the successes that people have found in our community. A remote job can also offer a springboard to a long and prosperous career as an entrepreneur.

On this week’s episode, Dan and Ian thought it would be fun to talk about their own personal history of remote jobs.

This podcast chronicles that perspective, from the first employee they hired, right up to their latest venture, a remote job board that they have recently launched called Dynamite Jobs.

Transcript

  • How and why we hired our first remote employee in 2008. (1:35)

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.
