Building your $100M+ holding company

How I’ve been thinking about building a $100M+ holding company Save this I'll let you in to my current thinking on building products that outperform. The best products don’t win. The products with the most distribution don’t always win. The products with the best nerds do. Imagine a world where every software product can be cloned by AI. We’re getting close to that. Everyone will be a “programmer” in that sense. Click a couple buttons and boom, duplicated internet powered business. And it...

Before we begin, I just posted a podcast with Tiago Forte (author of Second Brain and productivity leader) brainstorming $1M+ startup ideas. Watch it on YouTube or listen on Apple Podcasts and Spotify. Enjoy. Most websites look the same. Homepage, contact us, about, maybe a shop. That’s about it. You can browse it in your sleep. And in this world where standing out is essential, it’s rare to find a website that makes you click buy or contact us. That’s why most websites convert at a dismal...

Creating products that stick (and how to do it) Today, I’m going to discuss a powerful framework for creating products that stick, become routine and have built-in growth engines.

No-code tools make it easy to stand on the shoulders of giants. The result is launching a product is 1000x easier than it was 10...

I’ll be discussing how brands and creators can outperform over the next decade and why this is one of the greatest times to be “standing out” in the sea of the same. But first, story time… Today, I arrived in downtown Toronto. I was surrounded by big monolithic glass skyscrapers. I woke up and asked myself: “Wait, where am I again?” It could have easily been downtown Sydney or downtown San Francisco. The same signs of big banks and big multinational companies. The buildings have the same...

Reddit is one of my favorite places on the internet. It's like an early version of a metaverse, where people come together to create interconnected worlds, each with its own culture. That interconnectedness is what makes Reddit great, but for the system to work, each community has to conform to the one-size-fits-all mold of a subreddit. One size fits all, but it doesn't fit anyone particularly well. That creates unbundling opportunities. There are hundreds of wonderful startups waiting to be...

Before we begin, I just posted a podcast with Noah Kagan on how to find million dollar startup ideas in 2024. Watch it on YouTube or listen on Apple Podcasts and Spotify. Enjoy! I've started and sold 3 venture-backed companies before the age of 30. I've been advisor to Reddit and TikTok. Here are the 14 questions I get asked the most: 1. How do I go from zero to 10,000 followers on social? The fastest way to get 10,000 followers is through replies. You literally don't need to post content of...
