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.

“4 listener questions about money and online business answered by some weird—but cool—guys.”


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?

The Top 10 Mistakes in Online Business

Every week we talk with entrepreneurs. We talk about what’s working and what isn’t. We talk about successes and failures. We spend time with complete newbies, seasoned veterans, and everything in between.

One topic that comes up over and over again with both groups is mistakes made in starting businesses. Newbies love to learn about mistakes so they can avoid them. Veterans love to talk about what they wish they had known when starting out.

These conversations have been fascinating, so we compiled a list of the 10 mistakes we hear most often into a nifty lil' guide.
