We´re Live. Chuck and John Tell us a funny anecdote of how hatred took over a twitter post from Chuck, John probably did not respond the most civil way haha. People ended up calling any type of names the guys, but that´s how it is in the social storm right? Never on an argument, always in the mood for a battle.

This move on to a nice conversation with the guys focused on how any system does not welcome newcomers unless you´re strictly thinking the same way as they are. They always talk about tolerance, which is practically none existent. Satya gives a great anecdote on how at some point he had to change his accent just to be accepted.

Thoughts of the week

Satya - “There´s no real advantage or privilege”

Oct 15, 2019

We´re Live. Satya explains to Chuck the process of how he manages his whole business, which is divided into 3 parts. Gives great explanation and Chuck is something completely different from how things are managed in life. Lots of learning here.

Satya is a Family man but has accomplished dividing family and business in a great manner, has time for everything, in fact by next year half of his business will not need his attention.

Chuck and Satya share their experience, they are basically in the same spot but have different perspectives.


Thoughts of the week

Satya - “When running a business is always a good idea to have cash cushion”

Oct 8, 2019

We´re Live. John is crunching some numbers for Bulldog Mindset, and it's looking really good.

Low Expenses and big Revenue, the next step now is to increment the expenses to get even bigger revenue.

This became the main topic of conversation, When is the best time to hire?

Expenses will always need to grow in order for the business to evolve, this includes more employees. As an Entrepreneur this needs to be done at the exact moment, it could get problematic and even not finding the right person to hire. Nevertheless, it's a risk that needs to be taken.


Thoughts of the week:

Mani - “ In order to get big you need to expend a lot”

Oct 1, 2019

We´re Live. Guys start the conversation sharing a few laughs about an accident that Chuck had and has a nice scar in the head to prove it hehe (Harry potter Reference comes in).

Chuck´s First Marathon is coming in, he feels ready. John Gives him some advice but overall it's looking good for chuck.

John Gives a summary of what he is currently doing with Simple Programmer and the plans that he has for the future of SP. As far as everything goes this is a business that´s self-sustainable wich is good.

Mani asks him, what would John do differently if SP started from cero. The First thing John says is taking off his face from the branding. When a business is based on yourself it makes it so difficult to transition.

The great conversation starts here on how to start a business and how to make it work.

Thoughts of the week

John – “Competition has become so hard on youtube, back in the days you needed content, now you need to have a good looking ass”
