How One Bain Consultant’s Medical Debt Led Him to Become the Consultant For Aspiring Consultants

Listen to the interview on iTunes, or Google Podcast, or watch on YouTube.

In this episode David Smooke interviews Davis Nguyen, Founder of My Consulting Offer.  They discuss Davis's way into consulting, insights on social media marketing, and people’s motivations behind startups.

“I spent my money on just online courses. So I bought the best courses on YouTube ads, Facebook ads, Twitter ads, LinkedIn ads. What people spend, I imagine on alcohol and travelling, I've just spent on online courses.”

“ I know that maybe I am the person who gets us from zero to seven figures, which is there. But to go to eight figures and so forth in profit, that's either gonna by hiring a great team, training myself or just replacing myself eventually. Because I have no problem with that. It’s like how do we serve our customer base and how do we help people become better thinkers. And I'm biased because I work in management consulting, but I think that's one of the best training for anyone who wants to go down that road and they don't want to start a business, they are not like a side hustler or anything like that. And I want to make sure to continue that.”

E32 - Journalism Apocalypse and Tech Trends with Christina Warren of Microsoft

Episode 32 of the Hacker Noon Podcast: An interview with Christina Warren, former journalist at Mashable and Gizmodo, who currently works for Microsoft

In this episode Trent Lapinski interviews Christina Warren from Microsoft, who is a former journalist from Mashable and Gizmodo. You get to learn about journalism, fake news, and what’s happening in the big tech companies.

“This is what the news media struggles with, is that people don’t trust them, even though very often the mainstream media, in my opinion, isn’t out to mislead people and push an agenda. I think most working reporters are out to report the truth.

 

Microsoft is evolving and understands that it is not the past anymore. We ultimately want to build tools that developers can use regardless of what platform you’re on.” — Christina Warren
