Chasing Money, Trading On Your Name

Episode 3.4 of THE SHOW, the Last One With Thad Lewis

4.10.17





So this is the last episode with NFL Quarterback, entrepreneur, and all-around great dude Thad Lewis. We find a comfort level and a common theme here, and get into a great discussion about funding and sales.

Colgan does this exercise in which he pretends to be Thad and dreams up his cold email marketing campaign. There's a lot there for any entrepreneur to take away. The initial marketing boost, or lack thereof, is something that kills companies quickly, and Colgan is brilliant at it.

We're still working on the chemistry and finding our roles in these episodes, but I think we're starting to see some anchor points. Having Andy host the show was a smart step, which leaves Colgan and I free for advice and a bit of comic relief. Chop is Chop. When he says something, which isn't often, it's usually pretty brilliant.

The next block will feature just the four of us, already shot actually, so we'll turn another page then.
