Episode 43: 4 Listener Questions About Money (FS043)

Throughout the month of February we’ve brought you through some big questions about money. In this episode, it’s your turn to ask the questions.

We answer four questions from listeners and dive into things like:

  • keeping up steady sales AFTER you’ve launched your product,
  • the risks of partnerships and bank accounts,
  • the difference between a “business” and “passive income project,”
  • the heart-wrenching sound of an 18 year old reaching higher (and our best advice for being young and entrepreneurial)
  • BONUS: some killer stories about caleb in college.

If you're having a hard time figuring out what you want to go after as an entrepreneur, flip it on its head: instead of worrying about you and your passions, think about other people. Look around and say, who do I know and what sort of problems do they have and which ones do I feel like I could put a dent in?
