Lost and Founder

Sean Campbell
Authored bySean Campbell

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.

In This Episode

  • Rand’s story of transitioning from services to product offerings.
  • The importance of expectation setting. At a company and personal level.
  • Why Growth Hacks are a horrible idea.
  • The importance of Radical Candor
  • Why Rand thinks Minimally Viable Products (MVP) are a bad idea and what you should do instead.
