Hi ?, my name is Will King and I actually help write the show notes so I figured we could switch up the format for this episode! Brian and I discuss my very first business Fabled Labs, a business in progress for providing tools to self-published authors.
We start this episode by digging into how I got this gig and found a mentor in Brian by offering something that would be mutually beneficial for both of us. Then, Brian helps answer some of my questions and provides a good sanity check for the business plan and assumptions I have been making as I try and build a successful business. (8:43)
Also, Brian answered this question on YouTube, How to build a business with a day job?
He talks about some of the tradeoffs involved with still holding down the day job while kicking off a new business. (1:58)
[19:53] – Just because you can build something does not mean it is a business.
[33:45] – A business is hard to predict down the road. Focus on your first stage and evolve with your business.
