Outlier On Air | Interviewing Founders, Disruptors, & Mavens

"Hey, closed mouths do not get fed"

I think he just said that "Gary Vaynerchuck is the Jay-Z or the Puffy of the media world." This is a fun energetic listen that really gives some great insight to finding mentors and making introductions,  even if you are not an entrepreneur in the music business. James shares with Melinda how hard it was to let go of his great corporate job with Random House and how he has learned from people he never thought he could meet.

Highlights:

  • How to make introductions
  • Startup Weekend
  • Random House, Inc
  • Hip Hop & Tech
  • Putting things out to the world
