Ep.547 ~ A $3 Billion Startup That Created Elon Musk’s Unfoldable House - Paolo Tiramani

July 13, 2022

Listeners welcome to The Business Method Podcast and today we have the Founder of a $3 Billion Startup on the show!

His name is Paolo Tiramani and he is the founder of Boxabl. Boxabl makes 375-square-foot “unfolding” houses. And I say unfolding because that is exactly what they do. Literally, you take it off of a truck, and unfold it to have a really nice home. The unfolding of the house takes about an hour fully equipped with a full kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, television, living room and all you have to do to get the utilities working is just plug it in!

The houses don't need any special delivery equipment. It can fit on a normal flatbed trailer pulled by any vehicle. And given the small size, it can be delivered to almost anywhere you want it. You can literally have a house assembled in a single day that costs roughly $50,000 starting out and so far 90,000 people have signed up to get one.

Paolo is joining us on the podcast today to chat about how he built this incredibly innovative business into a $3 billion company!

At the age of 12 Christian Owens taught himself how to code and started building a software company.

Paddle, recently hit the unicorn level by raising $200 million, it has attracted developers with over $1 billion in volume and integrates Alipay, Google Pay and iDeal, empowering software companies to sell and grow globally.

Ep.545 ~ The 38th Richest Self-Made Woman ~ Janice Bryant Howroyd

June 1, 2022

I love incredibly successful people that still have the down-to-earth human touch. It is really enjoyable to talk with them and understand why they are who they are.  Today’s guest is one of those people and yet so much more. Janice Bryant Howroyd is the founder The ActOne Group and she is the very first African-American female to found a billion dollar company, and yes you heard me right, a billion dollar company.  

 

What is even more impressive about Janice is that speaking with her was like talking to an old friend. She is incredibly relatable and really a caring and authentic human being.

 

During the interview I noticed this and really wanted to get behind her story and what made her the amazing individual and entrepreneur she is today. We chat about her upbringing as an African-American in an extremely racial environment with a family of 11 children. We chat about he life philosophy, her habits and what she vales. We chat about how she maintains personal relationships while running a billion dollar company, the challenges of being a female entrepreneur, how us humans like to operate in tribes and some of her favorite books she recommends even though she has a 6000+ book library.  

 

At the end of the podcast, we ask Janice about her philosophy on influence in today’s world and how she handles it responsibility.  

 

“Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal!” JBH

Ep.535 ~ The Mindset of a Big Wave Surfer ~ Laird Hamilton

January 5, 2022

Our guest today is someone that I have followed since I first heard about him when I was 25 years old. Somewhere I came across this cool hour long surf video and I used to watch 2-3 times a week as a sort of meditation/visualization process picturing myself living somewhere where I could surf on a regular basis, and enjoy the beach lifestyle. One day, I was looking up more cool surf videos on YouTube and came across a video of this guy that would surf the biggest and most difficult waves anyone could surf. And I remember him saying in one of his videos on how he said he felt called to the waves, how the waves just called him in, and this really stuck out for me because many times I had felt called to climb mountains, travel the world, go on adventures and I didn’t really know where it came from, because the things that I was doing were semi crazy compared to everyone else I knew at the time. but that I had this intuitive feeling of being called to things also. During one of his videos he said this quote that struck me to my core. It was, “Do not be afraid of death, be afraid of a half lived life.” This really resonated with me, it spoke to me and I thought to myself….I like this guy. Since that moment I have followed him and watched multiple documentaries about the accomplishments he has taken on and how he lives his life. He is one of the two biggest names in surfing, and has become the Michael Jordan of big wave surfing and his name is Laird Hamilton

 

I will be honest, I was nervous as hell before the interview. I think that is expected when anyone meets their role model/superhero for the first time. But after a couple minutes, it really felt like I was speaking to an uncle that I had known for years. Laird was really down to earth, a good conversationalist and just fun to hang out with for the time we had together. We got nearly an hour and a half to chat on this interview and we talked about so much during that time, but what I really wanted to get out of the conversation is Lairds mentality, how he sees the world, and why he chooses to live his life the way he does. I think I did a pretty good job of that, while both of us having a really good time during the interview. We touch on everything from competition surfing, handling opposing views, near death experiences, inner-callings and being connected with one's higher-self, his passion for innovation, living a healthy and high-performance lifestyle and of course keeping his home balance and family routine. We dive into breathwork, Laird’s current recommended books, flow-states, reducing stress goal setting, daily rituals, the type of people Laird surrounds himself with, riding Teahupoo, where he conquered the impossible wave to ride that really put him at the top of big wave surfing and we find out if Laird still fears a half lived life. Ladies and gentlemen, I am so excited to bring this show to you….Laird Hamilton

Built to Sell Tips to Build Your Business

 

   18:50 Tip #1: Don’t Generalize in Business - Specialize

   24:35 Tip #2: Relying Too Heavily on One Client is Risky & Will Run Off Potential Buyers

   25:25 Tip #3: Owning a Process Makes it Easier to Pitch and Puts You in Control 

 

  • Be clean about what you are selling and potential customers will be more likely to buy your product.

 

  • When people are the main assets of the business and they can come and go every night, the business will not be worth very much

 

   29:10 Tip #4: How to Create a Personal Brain that is Sellable? 

 

  • Don’t become synonymous with your company 

 

   31:40 Tip #5: When You Have a Product - People Expect to Pay for it in Advance 

 

  • Make your service a product/productized!

 

   34:40 Tip #6: Don’t Be Afraid to Say No to Projects

 

  • Prove you are serious about specialization by turning down work that falls outside your area of expertise - the more you say no the more referrals you will get to people who need what you have

 

   39:10 Tip #9: Hire People Who are Selling Products - Not Services

 

  • These people will be better able to figure out how your product can meet a client's needs rather than agreeing to customize your offering to fit what the client wants.
