Back in episode 86 we talked to Paul van der Linden, who quit his job at IBM to start his own technology company, outThought.
At the time, Paul talked about the hopes, fears and challenges of leaving the corporate life to pursue his dreams (If you missed the chat, click here http://roosterradio.biz/blog/2017/7/24/ep-86-the-jump-case-study-part-1-paul-van-der-lindens-hopes-and-fears-after-quitting-ibm)
Almost a year later, we sit down with Paul again for Part 2 to talk about how his journey has progressed - expectations versus the reality of starting his company, which is at the cutting edge of artificial intelligence, virtual assistants and bot technology.
Paul talks about winning his first clients, the early successes, struggles and evolution of the business … as well as his own personal development throughout the process.
Brad Krauskopf is an entrepreneur and workplace innovator who is a leading voice in coworking and flexible work.
He is the founder of Hub Australia, the country’s largest co-working community with spaces in Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney.
But first, you may be wondering what co-working actually is. Typically, it’s where independent workers come together at shared workspaces, renting desks or offices under flexible membership arrangements, creating communities of entrepreneurs, freelancers and startups that not only share facilities but also ideas and knowledge.
Coworking has gone from niche to mainstream in recent years, there are now numerous spaces in most cities throughout the world, which have sprung up in parallel with our shift in work culture.
Brad talks about his story as well as the power of coworking, coworker culture, collaboration benefits, work trends and much more.
People talk a lot about entrepreneurship and risk, but sh*t gets real when you have kids and a mortgage to pay.
The heart says pursue your business dreams, the head says stick to your 9 to 5 and provide. But does it have to be one or the other? What if there was a way to transition into your own business life without having to fall off a cliff? If it's possible, how the hell do you make it work?
James and Andrew talk about the issues, opening up about aspects of their own journeys and challenges while also sharing lessons learned along the way. A lot of ground is covered in this episode, recorded in a mediocre hotel room in Sydney (Also listen in for James' special announcement).
