Lost and Founder with Rand Fishkin

Lost and Founder

Rand Fishkin, the author of “Lost and Founder: A Painfully Honest Field Guide to the Startup World” joins the show today. Rand’s book is a clear and authentic view of the pain and opportunity all startup founders face.

Rand reminds us that “first-time founders, like first-time gamers, die on the first level.” Rand’s wise advice can help any kind of founder (startup, product, or team lead) get past that first level.
