240 — Rand Fishkin

Podcast Summary:

If you have not had a chance to read Rand’s book, “Lost and Founder,” then listen to this interview and you’ll hear lots of reasons to do so. Rand is super transparent about:

  • His depression and what he recommends to other Founders who may suffer from this
  • Why it’s so important to exit team members who may not be a good culture fit for your startup
  • Why it’s so important to become a self-aware Founder and how Rand discovered how his disliked direct sales
  • Answering this question: Why do Founders have to be always positive even during challenging times?

Rand is kind, transparent and very gracious with his experiences and insights. I think you’ll get a lot out of this interview.
