1240: Investor Mindset & DuckDuckGo Founder, Super Thinking Mental Models & Traction, How Any Startup Explosive Growth by Gabriel Weinberg
Jason Hartman and Investment Counselor Adam start off today's show discussing the mindset of investors that needs to change. The whole idea of a "discount" isn't a reliable methodology for investors, things should be viewed in a win-win lense.
Then Jason talks with Gabriel Weinberg, founder of DuckDuckGo and author of Traction: How Any Startup Can Achieve Customer Growth and Super Thinking: The Big Book of Mental Models, about how you can use some of the mental models to help you achieve the returns you desire. They also touch on the problem of achieving privacy in today's world and how DuckDuckGo helps in that.
