A few takeaways:
- Working with Jack Butcher: He interviewed Jack for his podcast and then reached later with some ideas to contribute to Visualize Value. He got a chance to learn a bunch of different aspects of running an online business while getting great mentorship with Jack.
- Continuing with college: He has the skills and connections to jump into a successful career in startups. But college still provides a great environment to learn and meet other people. And Columbia gives access to New York.
- Pausing the podcast and newsletter: Too much going on. The good side of the podcast was that it gave him a reason to reach out to people for interviews. But later on he found he was listening to all this advice from people but then wasn’t actually applying it. So he took some time to focus on actually applying himself to see where that could go.
(Seems like it’s gone very well so far.)
