015 - Coworking and Startups with Chirag Gupta

Welcome everyone to another episode of Analysis Paralysis. Today I'm here with Chirag Gupta who runs a coworking space calls NoD Coworking, developed in part due to his passion for helping others and wanted to build an area where people could come together to network and pool their resources. I've always had the idea of starting an accelerator or an incubator... some way of helping startups, and while co-working spaces are a bit different, I had some questions on how the business model works, how difficult it is to implement, and how Chirag got started. Links from the show: LinkedIn - (Chirag - Guest) NoD Coworking - (Company - Guest)

010 - Talking Copper (Formerly ProsperWorks CRM) with Brittany Perez

Wanting to run or work for a startup is a common goal nowadays. New companies are launched all the time, led by founders who hope to move quick and grow fast. But as we all know, not all are successful. Why is this? Why do some succeed and others fail? Brittany Perez, who leads the account management team at Copper, is familiar with these questions. She left a comfortable position at a well-known company (Intuit) to work at Copper, and since joining the team, they’ve grown from 28 employees to hundreds, and have raised just under $100M in venture backing. In this episode, Brittany discusses: why she decided to leave Intuit for the risky startup space and take a chance on Copper; the difficulties female sales representatives must face in a heavily male-dominated space; and what made her fall in love with Copper after using Salesforce for most of her career.

008 - Pivoting a Successful Marketing Company w/ Jaime Nacach

On this episode of Analysis Paralysis, I am talking to Jaime Nacach. He runs a successful marketing company and fell in love with automation after using inside of his existing company. Naturally, that has led to him building a side company solely built around automation and Jaime has been going through the process of transitioning his existing company into an automation-focused business solutions company. This episode hits very close to home with me as I recently went through somewhat of a similar transition in my own business. Advice was given around how to value and charge for this service offering, especially when your natural instinct is just to help and not charge your worth as the service is rooted in pure passion. Passion is incredibly helpful to have in any business you run, but it often results in not charging your worth as you often just want to help people and share your expertise with others. We talk about how you very well can charge what you are worth, while still helping businesses, but charging based on the value that you are delivering.

007 - From Assembly Line Automation to Automating Small Businesses w/ David Zisner

On this episode of Analysis Paralysis, I am talking to David Zisner. He was an electrical engineer that worked at Intel for 15 years doing assembly line automations. He is now consulting and doing automation for small to medium size businesses. We talk about how it's important to focus and specialize on specific software solutions, in his case, the CRM Pipedrive, versus being a jack of all traits. We even finish off the call discussing chat bots, AI, and some of the crazy things Google is doing to push the industry forward and some of the backlash that has come from Google Duplex announced at Google I/O 2018.
