It seems absurd now, but co-founder of Netflix Marc Randolph was told his company name would never work.
Today, Marc Randolph is sharing some of the same advice he’s giving on his new podcast, “That Will Never Work.” We’ll discuss fighting fear, hiring the right team, having conviction in your ideas, and more. And don’t worry if you aren’t interested in becoming an entrepreneur. We also asked Marc how to interview better (he’s interviewed thousands of people) AND how to ask your boss for a raise. In fact, you’ll be surprised what he has to say about raises.
Wondering what’s going on in the world of fintech?
Plus, we’ll tackle a headline about Jeff Bezos stepping down from Amazon.
We’ll finish today’s show with a question we often get about 401k plans.
After you leave a company, should you move your funds? Josh left the basement a voicemail explaining that he likes keeping his investments in one place so it’s simple to stay focused on the big picture. However, Josh won’t be able to contribute to the Thrift Savings Plan after he retires from the military. He asks: is there a benefit to keeping his money in the account? Would he be missing out on anything if he rolls his TSP over to a Roth IRA?
As always, we’ll save some time for Doug’s trivia. Enjoy!
