In this YouTube video, the hosts and guest speaker Paul Jarvis discuss a range of topics from the recent controversy at Basecamp to the importance of mental health in the tech and startup culture, the difference between building a personal enterprise versus a personal brand, and the challenges of dealing with negativity and trolls online. Paul Jarvis shares his own journey of building a personal brand to attract an audience around an idea instead of tying it to his name. He also emphasizes the importance of having purpose behind your work and listening to your audience, while being willing to let go of a product if it doesn't work out.
In this video, Paul Jarvis talks about personal enterprise and personal brands, and how personal enterprise should be focused on making money. He advises creators to build a brand with the intention of making money from the community they are creating, and highlights how building a business isn't necessarily linked to being popular. Additionally, Paul suggests turning off all email tracking to build an email database without tracking users' activities, and introduces occasional click tracking once a year to shrink the list by half. The conversation ends lightheartedly with a discussion about tracking pixels in newsletters and how to avoid being tracked by advertisers.
