The Journey From Travelling Poet to Online Entrepreneur

May 28, 2015, 07:30 AM

My guest today is a poet turned tech junkie and entrepreneur. After receiving a graduate degree in literature in 2000, my guest headed for Europe, where he sang rhymes to crowds for 5 years before moving to Arabia to teach Shakespeare to American troops.

His interest in tech was sparked while working for a VC firm in Utah. His due diligence work there taught him one thing: he wanted to be the startup, not the investor. He got that chance in 2011 when he launched Post Planner. From there my guest and his co-founder grew Post Planner from a simple scheduler into a powerhouse content curation and social publishing platform. Now, let's hack... Josh Parkinson. In this 36-minute episode Josh Parkinsonand I discuss:

People who don't give up win, those who do not disappear Gut feel and data: how it helped him find his platform for business How he used being independent as a motive to be an entrepreneur When and how he delegates tasks to his peers Choosing and creating the reality you want to live in Articulation - why it's very important to him growing his business
