ABOUT THIS EPISODE:

How many of us let what others think and say dictate the way we value our ideas? Does hearing no discourage you? How about when someone tells you that what you’re working on will never work? This week’s guest has literally made a living as an entrepreneur, being told that his ideas would never work every step of the way. Marc Randolph is the cofounder of Netflix, author of the book, “That Will Never Work,” host of the podcast “That Will Never Work,” serial entrepreneur, investor, advisor, and mentor to young founders. Marc would be the first to tell you that the ability to receive critical feedback positively and constructively can be the difference between expanding on your idea and watching it fade.

We discuss Marc’s backstory, and how he came to discover his own entrepreneurial spirit. Marc speaks on the importance of communication and brutal honesty both at home and in the workplace. We talk about developing company culture, delegation and workflow, and the balance of freedom and responsibility within a company. Other topics covered include:

  • Having hard conversations with compassion
  • Socratic discussion and problem solving
  • Important skill sets for entrepreneurs
  • Work/life balance
  • Identifying the few important things to get right that will solve the rest of the problems
  • Why actions speak louder than words
