Dan and Ian are in reflective mood after hosting 350 entrepreneurs at their annual DC BKK event in Bangkok last week.

While they were there, they had the opportunity to speak to many entrepreneurs about their business struggles and successes throughout 2018.

In light of those conversations, we’ve decided to address some of the common topics and themes we heard on today’s episode.

This week, we are discussing the five trends that internet businesses need to consider for the upcoming year. We’ll be talking location freedom, hiring practices, conference strategies, and much, much more.

  • How companies are using remote staff as a competitive advantage. (5:58)
  • Whether we are finally starting to see a legitimate challenge to the 1,000 Day Principle. (13:52)
  • Why it’s easier than ever to get investment capital. (18:56)
  • The fundamental flaw in the works of Tim Ferriss. (21:01)
