My favorite podcast. Guy Raz is interviewing Founders who made it and get them to tell their stories ‘How they built this’. A couple of commonalities emerge from listening to different Founders:  

  • Success doesn’t came overnight
  • It’s never a one-man show
  • They have an idea they strongly believe in
  • You need to leave your comfort zone
  • They were not in for the money (or say to get rich)
  • They launched with something that hardly qualifies as prototype
  • Building a company is difficult

Nothing of this is new but more like common wisdom, however, its still interesting to identify a set of patterns by listening to the stories of successful Founders.
