Description:

Lauren and Jesse are back for another episode of the pod - which at recording was still yet to be named - to tackle another batch of listener questions. (Episode three promises to be referred to by its now-given name.)

Qs tackled in this episode:

  • What’s the most effective way to spend quality time together when you’re tired from training and work?
  • How do you go about securing sponsorships as an athlete?
  • How did you get past the point of having to do everything for your business to being able to hire people to help?
  • When you were first starting out as entrepreneurs - how did you decide whether to offer health care for employees and how much to offer?

The duo let's their listeners in on the amazing secret benefits of... Dinner and a Movie! They discuss finding sponsors as professional athletes, creating value for those sponsors outside of race results, and the rise of the "influencer." Next is exploring the entrepreneurial process of mastering a task then hiring help to expand - Jesse recommends the book E-Myth. Finally, they discuss the gradual steps they took to offer health care to Picky Bars employees.
