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.”

Episode 28 of the Hacker Noon Podcast: An interview with Wayne Chang and Gregory Rocco of Alpine Intel, a new unit within ConsenSys.
In this episode Trent Lapinski interviews Wayne Chang and Gregory Rocco from Alpine Intel to discuss bringing blockchain solutions to enterprise companies.
“Alpine is a new unit within ConsenSys. We were effectively the cryptoeconomics team at Token Foundry and we found a lot of demand for our services, and basically we want to build these new economies.”—Wayne Chang
“What we look to do is engineer value rather than create speculative value. We’re personally not affected by crypto winter. As Wayne mentioned, we’re focused a lot on enterprise too and seeing where the value can be driven in enterprises.” — Gregory Rocco
“The combination of a global computer, smart contracts, tokens, all these things are going to help drive the transaction cost down of doing business, and you’re going to unlock new kinds of transactions that are going to form new markets that we couldn’t even imagine before.” — Wayne Chang
