What’s it like to be rich?

Not just kinda rich… but really, really rich.

Today, I interview David Hauser, a co-founder of Grasshopper and angel investor in Intercom, Unbounce, and more.

In 2015, David sold Grasshopper for around $200 million.

He only had one other co-founder, and didn’t take investments — so he made a LOT of money.

Some people might think it’s taboo to talk about money…

But I wanted to go behind-the-scenes on what it’s like to sell a startup and make money most people only dream about. (Hint: It isn’t as glamorous as you think.)

In today’s conversation, you’ll learn 3 key things:

  1. What life is like when you sell a company for $200 million
  2. Why more money means LESS happiness
  3. The quickest way to generate wealth

And a lot more.

Stuff we talk about:

  • Chargify. David founded this company, and got an investment from Mark Cuban.
  • Grasshopper. David’s company he sold to almost $200 million.
  • 3 investments I’ve done: Teachable, Huckberry, Buffer. Had these investments for about 5 years.
  • Uber. According to Dave, people have made their entire career from this investment.
  • Chartable. Podcast analytics and tracking that I use.
  • Rich People Book. The book I wrote after learning where the ultra-wealthy (8-figures and above) put their money
  • Bandito. Restaurant that David invested in that he doesn’t think will get a great return.

Enjoy.

What are you ignoring in your business?

Every business has things we just accept as “normal.”

But “normal” doesn’t mean it’s good for our company.

For example, at the Sumo offices, we have a door that’s been broken for two years. After a while, we accepted that we had to use the other door.

In today’s Entrepreneur Appetizer story, I share the lesson I learned from the door.

This lesson applies to business, entrepreneurship… and even our personal lives.

In this short podcast, you’ll learn 3 key things:

  1. What a broken door can teach you about business and life
  2. Why acceptance can be like a disease
  3. How we put “sticky notes” over things in our business that are not working

Enjoy.

This year, we did fantasy football at our company.

I got my butt kicked.

What’s ridiculous is, I hired a coach! And I still didn’t even make the playoffs. I thought I could just have my coach do everything without putting in any effort myself.

It might seem odd to mention fantasy football on my blog. But it taught me a valuable lesson about business and life...

You need to put in the effort.

In today’s short podcast episode, I’m sharing how you can win in business and life.

You’ll learn 3 major things, plus a bunch more:

  1. How our former teammate Jordache dominated our fantasy league (we thought he was cheating at first)
  2. What I learned about coaches to be more successful
  3. Why effort matters for success — and why shortcuts don’t always matter

Enjoy
