Another one of Noah’s deep dives into the current challenges of another business.
This time it’s Dan Andrews from the awesome Tropical MBA podcast talking about (lack of) prioritization, shiny object syndrome and scaling a new revenue stream.
This is a conversation rather than an interview with Noah giving Dan very direct advice (they’re good friends in real life).
There’s a lot in this and hard to get down to 3 takeaways. I enjoyed it for the way the business ideas came together through the episode.
- Interesting (and obvious when you hear it) that the Tropical MBA / Dynamite Circle brand holds them back. It doesn’t sound or look like a high end, “real” business community. It is exactly that. The lesson is, brand matters. Dan actually believes members hold back sharing the community because of the brand.
- When building new products, Noah always tries to consider a recession. What will people / businesses still need in a downturn?
- It all boils down to how you can help people achieve their goals using your unique way.
