Hi Ethan! It’s great to see you again, and thanks to you and Sam for a really inspirational conversation. If you were advising a young/aspiring entrepreneur (let’s say a college student) trying to decide whether to dive into their idea full time or not, what advice would you give them after experiencing the disruption (excitement and terror) of this year?

Ethan, you should read The Innovation Stack from Jim McKelvey, founder of Square, to see how they dealt with Amazon moving into payments, right on top of their small company.

The Shout outs work really well in an office, too. Where people simply stick a shout out on a board in the lunch’ gathering space, as well as in person. Some people are uncomfortable being recognized in front of the group.
