Ryan Dobbs, Do You Need a Co-founder, and Replacing Yourself in Your Business – ES 010

ryan dobbsJoe and Dan open the show by discussing whether or not a new startup founder or entrepreneur needs a partner or co-founder.  They discuss some of the topics covered in a Business Insider article.  Joe thinks he works better with someone else, Dan can go either way.  Listen to them explain why, and then decide for yourself!

Then we move on to round two, where two podcast episodes are discussed, both from Ryan Dobbs of the Unreasonable Entrepreneur.  Ryan has become a master of putting systems in place so that his businesses will practically run themselves.  Dan opens up about his failures in trying to do the same.

Finally, the main event features an interview with the Unreasonable Entrepreneur himself, Ryan Dobbs.  Ryan discusses his successes and failures in hiring employees and stepping away from his businesses.  He talks about an embarrassing incident that happened with one person he trusted a lot, and how difficult it was for him to handle.  Also, as a big time fitness buff, Ryan tells the guys where to expect the next wave in fitness fads to come from.  This was a great interview, and we think you’ll be hearing from Ryan for years to come!

Bonus: Don’t miss Ryan’s secret ninja trick for finding A+ employees that are readily available and have practically no competition!
