Key Lessons from the Episode

The most important things to take away


Say yes to life and take opportunities as they come. Good things can happen when you try a lot of things that could end up good.

"The more you just say yes, the more I consider those darts thrown like good things can happen."

Elbow grease and throwing darts are essential for growing a business. Keep grinding and trying different approaches.

"It's just blind faith on the concept of elbow grease. I was like, I'm pretty sure only two things matter. Elbow grease and throwing darts."

Focus on providing value to your customers, even if it's something as simple as making their week a little more fun.

"We're just making the week a little more fun. Our initial slogan, which we removed, was make Monday suck less."

Don't be afraid to charge for your product or service. You may be undervaluing it if you're too cheap.

"We know we should charge more. It's so cheap."

Build relationships with your customers and listen to their feedback to improve your product or service.

"It was a great answer, and I felt really good that thousands or tens of thousands of people a week have their week just a tiny bit better."
