Random Show Episode 26

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.


Lessons learned
  • 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!
