podcast 48:05 | Download | spotify| stapler | itunes | Comment

We have received excellent email responses following last week’s episode ‘The Question of Europe’. So on today’s show, Dan and Ian will reflect on some of those comments.

They will also be reflecting on a recurring dilemma posed by a listener, one that is very much on their minds as they grow ‘Dynamite Jobs’:

“David and Goliath or Dynamite Jobs versus… At one point you mentioned that just hearing the word Indeed made you anxious, maybe excited… (this) resonated with me. My partner and I are currently building a software product that will probably go head-to-head with some pretty big names, and they have at least a decade head start on us…

The only thing that takes me back is that I spent the last decade in entrepreneurship, always staying in little safe cubes of little protected niches. Small niches are often easier to start, but easier to hit a ceiling in terms of the market. Size. Having seen our businesses grow to the upper limits of the markets we are in, we have our eyes on the biggest prize where the biggest players are players who really know what they are doing.”.

Listen to this week’s program and learn:

  • How European tax regimes can discourage productivity and creativity
  • The joys of cities where you can safely walk and bike
  • The challenges and opportunities of facing great players
  • Sugar vs Vegetable Income Options
