December 30, 2016 Ep. 131 ~ I Told the VC’s I Won’t Take Their Offer ~ Kamil Kaminski
In this episode, we have a recent Alum of The Entrepreneur House on the show, Kamil Kaminski! Kamil is from Warsaw, Poland and runs a business providing content for entrepreneurs that don’t have much time by interviewing them and translating those interviews into blog articles.
His background is in mathematics and education. He was developing an E-learning platform that would prepare students for their exams, but just before sealing the deal with venture capitalists he decided to pursue his dream of being location independent and starting a real business rather than working with a VC backed startup.
He’s talents are content strategy, and creating educational blog posts. In this episode, we will address the why behind content, writing a blog and why they are both important. We will also touch on new business and product ideas and how to scale them from 0-$4,000 in one month.
P.S. We have to let you know we had some connection issues during the podcast and there are a few choppy places in the audio. Many apologies we did the best we could to patch it up nicely.
Valuable Tips from Kamil:
The questions you should ask yourself before you start a new business or product….
1. Are you excited to work on this everyday for the next 4 years?
2. Would you like to have lunch with your clients every Friday?
3. Is it scaleable and can it run without you?
4. Will it launch quickly?
“It’s human nature to write about yourself. What you should be doing is writing about the person who is going to be reading your blog.” Kamil Kaminski
“I though f*** that….I told the VC’s I won’t take their offer.” Kamil Kaminski
“I created my offer using the exact problems and objections they had.” Kamil Kaminski
