Teaching Startup: The Show Featuring WedPics Founder Justin Miller

The 2-block will be about marketing, perception, and pivot

2.20.17





So this is the first set of episodes we attempted with a special guest star, and for this first run-through, I went with a friend, WedPics co-founder Justin Miller, whom I've known since he left IBM to start his first company, DejaMi.

Justin is the kind of entrepreneur I want to highlight, not someone you'd likely find in an MBA program, and someone who can talk to the "startup for everyone" vibe I'm building Teaching Startup around.

But… it was still a tough shoot and these episodes have a different flavor than the last block (1.1 through 1.6, watch them all!). After this shoot -- which, to be clear, was totally awesome and produced some very excellent content -- we decided, in true startup fashion, that we needed to focus on The Show, our chemistry, and the execution of it, and make it great.

Then of course, former Duke and current 49ers quarterback Thad Lewis agreed to be a part of the next shoot, so you'll see him in the 3-block or you can watch the shoot live on Thursday, 2/23, at 5:30pm ET on Facebook Live.

Then in the 4-block we'll get our act together. It'll be worth it.
