EP 80: PHILHSC On Why You Should Revisit Old Assumptions (And How To Do It)

11/15/2018
More
Assumptions are the basis for most startups. After identifying opportunities, founders use assumptions to begin piecing together a narrative to communicate their vision. And it’s just expected that each assumption in a startup’s business model will get tested and iterated over time. The reality is, however, that there are assumptions that don’t get tested. Some of these are linchpin assumptions, ones that are critical to the business model that founders are selling to customers, investors...

In Gerard’s words, ‘My mission is to help the founders, innovators, creators and dreamers find their customers, to see their product being deployed and fulfil their business potential.

EP 78: PhilHSC On 10 Ways Founders Can Scale Wellness

10/24/2018
More
Wellness is a loaded term. It means too many things to too many people. And when it comes to scaling a business and teams, wellness isn’t on the critical path which is ironic given how important team performance is to a venture’s success. Some founders consider wellness a personal responsibility of each team member (that was me). Others solve for wellness by introducing yoga, healthy snacks and flexible work arrangements (to name a few) for their teams to access. These two approaches (and...

EP 76: PHILHSC On The Question He Asks Twice A Year

10/11/2018
More
Asking the right question at the right time is an art. As my good friend Melissa Rosenthal says, it takes practice and when you get it right, it pays off in spades. Over the years I have learned that the ‘right’ questions often have three dimensions; I have also become reliant on asking these questions for two reasons, both of which have to do with self-awareness. The first relates to pursuing a problem. Like most people I have biases and like most entrepreneurs, I come with high levels...

EP 74: PHILHSC On How To Validate An Idea In 30 Days

9/5/2018
More
Where do I start with my idea? I get this question a lot and those who ask usually possess infectious excitement about an idea, are new to product development and remain convinced that their addressable market of customers is massive. The irony is that 90% of people who ask where to start, don’t. Deep down they know why and it usually comes down to three reasons. Fear is the first reason (and there’s an antidote) The first reason is fear. People fear what they don’t know and more...

EP 72: PhilHSC On Making Sense Of Startup Advice

8/18/2018

Startup founders are advice magnets. Friends, family, investors, self-proclaimed experts and pundits, users and customers all like to share their two cents worth. Most founders I know do their best to balance this advice against their vision but it’s not easy. A thread on LinkedIn brought this issue to light and people from across the advice spectrum weighted in. Those on the sidelines argued that diversity of perspective is important. Founder’s said that the quality of advice from those...

EP 70: PhilHSC On 7 Reasons You Struggle To Hire Developers

I often hear that software developers are the most difficult hire for non-technical founders. The process and questions to determine a candidate’s fit is a mystery to most of these founders. And regardless of whether they’re looking for a Chief Technology Officer or a freelancer to help hack the first version of a product, they often feel completely out of their depth when speaking with developer candidates. As a result, they rely on what they think they know about recruiting talent. For...

EP 67: PhilHSC on 6 Steps To Repair Customer Relationships

7/10/2018

I hate losing customers. And it’s one thing to lose customers if you sell to consumers where the universe of potential customers is high and attrition is expected. It’s quite another if your business sells to other businesses. In these companies, a relatively small group of customers create the majority of the value and it can take months, if not years, to develop those relationships. Losing one of these customers can be devastating. And in worse case scenarios losing a customer can start...

This episode is an excerpt from my forthcoming book, In Between. I’m bringing this forward as a result of an unexpected conversation I had with a 24-year-old first-time founder this week.

In Between lays out the approach to help entrepreneurs move between ventures. And this approach extends beyond entrepreneurs to apply to people and communities who...
