Episode #21: Eran Thomson on Starting a Business for the Wrong Reasons With the Wrong People

Joining me for Episode #21 is Eran Thomson, our first guest joining us from Australia. The is the creator of the game “Song Saga,” which is now available for your holiday gift-giving needs. He's been the founder of many entrepreneurial ventures, and he describes himself as a “Wordsmith, Idea Machine, Joy Pusher” in addition to being a writer, podcaster, marketer, and speaker.

In our discussion, Eran talks about a number of mistakes, including his habit of trying to do everything himself, instead of delegating and bringing in experts or specialists… that might resonate with you even if you're not a serial entrepreneur like Eran. We also discuss when you should persevere and when you should give up on something, again a question and topic that might appeal to Lean practitioners.
