The Mimic Method is a system of learning a foreign language that uses sounds and accent before learning the words of a language. Idahosa came up with this concept while practicing music in Brazil. This is the way children learn to speak, and learn rapidly, why couldn’t adults do it too? Fast forward to today, and The Mimic Method has helped thousands of students grow their language skills. Idahosa chats with us today about the ups and downs of growing this business, his own personal struggles of team building and we also chat about life/business philosophy. 01:26: Idahosa’s Story 05:39: How Idahosa Grew the Mimic Method 10:12: Understanding Your Weaknesses to Grow Your Team 14:27: Managing the Working in Sprints with Life Balance 18:14: Idahosa on Letting Go of Control for Business and Personal Growth 25:33: Idahosa on Product Invention and the Idea of Quadrupling Down on It 28:16: Idahosa on Life Philosophy 32:56: Chris and Idahosa Talk About Lisbon, Portugal 39:46: Podcast Recommendations “Really it does come down to hiring early…if you have any ambition to do anything significant, it will inevitably involve other people.
