Last week we talked about ambitions, execution and failure. This week, we riff off an email sent by AJ Leon in which he talks about the decision whether or not to give up. He recently stuck with something and ended up $8,000 lighter. Good decision? Bad decision?
That's a key question we're all faced with. Is it better to cut our losses and abandon a road we've set off down, or should we push on?
Chris Brogan gets his regular airing too as Paul and Roger discuss his recent email about the rise of bespoke business.
In the podcast, Roger alludes to a story about Walt Disney being born in Mojácar, a village in Spain. It's quite likely nonsense, but you can find out more here: The Spanish Connection.
