  1. Two thumbs up for an interview that extols the virtues of hard work trumping talent, putting yourself out there, shipping your product and Randy Rhoads.

  2. Wow. I replayed this podcast three times. You guys nailed every point.

    Michael, any thoughts on rebranding yourself as an entrepreneur/business speaker rather than trend following? It might better align your audience with your message.

  3. I enjoyed listening to you two rap about life and entrepreneurship. There were some great points. I’m familiar with Dan’s work and it was also interesting to finally hear some details about his first endeavor- sounded like textbook 4 Hour stuff. I wonder what value Dan would put on having that SEO skillset was to getting a win and some early traction?
