Creating successful companies and launching podcasts are big accomplishments, but to Andy Bowers its second nature. When starting something new, Bowers believes that you should just start instead of worrying about making it perfect.
Join us on March 17 to learn Andy’s personal frameworks and techniques he’s applied throughout his career when starting something new. These include:
- How to think of your audience as your co-producer
- Don’t reinvent the wheel. Find things that worked in the past rather than starting from scratch entirely.
- Why segmenting your audience is important
- Don’t go for perfect – just start.
- How to avoid bias
- And more
