A topic we don’t talk about on Mixergy is how to actually manage a company. I remember when I was in NYU as an undergrad I loved all my business classes, but management just didn’t feel like me. I always thought of the guys in Dilbert but entrepreneurs were the ones who were creating, the ones who were doing. Mixergy’s grown and I’ve been runni ...…

Today’s guest is a little bit different. He’s not a tech entrepreneur. He didn’t build his company in his dorm room. He had kind of a winding road to get here, and the reason that I’m having him on is I think this story is going to be useful for you, but also I’m just freaking fascinated by the guy. He has a kind of personality that makes you j ...…
 
On today's Weekly Wrap, we're consumed by tax reform and discuss voodoo economics, which is a euphemism for trickle-down economics coined by a Republican.

Before we started, I was talking today’s guest about how so many entrepreneurs, even close friends of mine, will just hide whenever something goes wrong and not talk about it. As a result, we get this impression that everyone is doing well because when they’re not doing well we don’t know about it. With that said, I’ll tell you that today’s gue ...…
 
It’s a tax bill! It’s a healthcare bill! It’s a tax bill! It’s a healthcare bill?

Freek Vermeulen, an associate professor of strategy and entrepreneurship at the London Business School, argues that too many companies are following so-called best practices that are actually holding them back.
