A new episode of the Random Show with Kevin Rose (founder of Digg) and Tim Ferriss (author of The 4-Hour Workweek) is out! This is episode 26.
- According to Tim Ferriss, a lot of would be entrepreneurs follow this quote: "Everything has been done and there's nothing left." But that's not true, because there's so much left to invent.
- Tim Ferriss's favorite market that you should target if you are building a company is very precisely defined, relatively easy to target, and price-insensitive high-end.
- You don't have to be a large public company and follow the traditional "Silicon Valley way" of building a company. The Swedish furniture company IKEA could do it on their own.
- Both Kevin Rose and Tim Ferriss seems to be burned out from the current "tech" hysteria in Silicon Valley. Tim Ferriss argues that we have a tech-bubble and the companies that will survive are the lean companies that are not in a rush.
- Take some time to be thankful and make a list of those things!
- Both Kevin Rose and Tim Ferriss recommended the book Zero to One by Peter Thiel.
- Tim Ferriss recommended the books Refinery29: Style Stalking, The Art of Robert E McGinnis, J.C. Leyendecker: American Imagist, The Gibson Girl and Her America, Epicureans and Stoics, The Underground Storyteller, and The Magic of Thinking Big.
- Tim Ferriss also recommended an axe from SOG Specialty Knives & Tools.
- Tim Ferriss recommended the book Influence, which is a book on psychology.
