Gary has a really interesting story — from dead broke desperate handyman to successful entrepreneur.
Over the last 15 years, he has interviewed hundreds of successful entrepreneurs to discover which skills are critical for starting and running a business. Many are not what you think.
My favorite advice from the interview:
"Find a problem. Figure out how to solve the problem. Find more people with the same problem and you have a business."
I like that Gary’s views make me think. I have been in "do what you love (and work and work and work and work) and the money will follow" mode for so long that the "problem/solution" model was very intriguing.

Note to regular podcast listeners: I have been veering off my "every 2 weeks" publishing schedule a bit as I am writing my book. I need to do this in order to get the work done. Once the book is turned in (September 15, come heck or high water), I will come back to a more regular schedule. Thanks for your support and understanding!
