Hello from New York City!

P.P.S: Don't know who I am? Look at this.

It's really good.   In-depth and actionable insights on how to act as the CEO of a large company, especially when things get tough.  I found immense value even though it's targeting companies much larger than mine.

* Also love that he's a total rap buff and integrates hardcore lyrics throughout to entertainingly introduce a relevant lesson or chapter.

This episode is great for engineering or product-based entrepreneurs who could use some guidance getting started and finding investors.
