45: Paperbacks & Dog Ears



This week, Andrew continues on his rant about the Profit. He really wants to know how the back end of that business works:

The dichotomy of

  • Hiring stellar people is how you build a business but
  • Stellar people don't want to stick around because they are, well, stellar
  • Brett and Andrew have very different ways of approaching hiring and growing businesses.

Andrew tells the same exact story again.

We dig into each of these aspects of Brett's new business and figure out what the potential problems are. Also, Brett repeatedly gets ahead of what Andrew wants to talk about and Andrew becomes audibly annoyed.


Andrew tells the story of where is his Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew books came from. Brett lets him know he is missing the point.
