280: TZ Interview – Mike Taber / The Single Founder Handbook

Justin talks with Mike Taber author of The Single Founder Handbook

  1. Sandy says:

    Around the 6:23 marker:

    Justin: Have you applied the principles of this book to any of your own projects or businesses and seen success, and what are those?
    Mike: Answers something unrelated….

    That’s kinda my complaint about listening to Mike on Startups for the Rest of Us. I see nothing to indicate he’s actually been successful at what he talks about, but is actually an antipattern with Audit Shark. I don’t know Mike personally and actually wish him lots of luck, but it hurts the credibility of the show, IMO.

  2. David says:

    @Sandy: You’re right.Mike has an ‘answer’ to everything, but nothing he tells seems to be a first-hand experience.
    That’s what makes the discussions between Justin and Jason so much more interesting. They chat about their own experiences.
    @ Justin: I like the way you tried to challenge Mike about the MVP. Again, it’s a disappointment that he did not have any personal story to tell about it.

  3. Thank you Justin for doing the interview. I always liked Techzing interview shows, very in-depth with excellent questions. Looking forward to reading Mike’s book. Rob Walling’s “Start Small, Stay Small” was very useful.

  4. BTW, if you are a software entrepreneur please makes sure you know about the new AdWords policy that affects advertisement of _all_ desktop software:


    Our 10-year old AdWords account was suspended without warning. It’s been almost three weeks and we still cannot get it restored.

  5. Glad you’re getting back into interviews.
    And big shout out to Mike from a micropreneur academy member. 🙂

    This was definitely a weird interview. I doubt Justin and Jason are getting back into interviews, this was more of a favor to Mike who was trying to “thunderclap” attention around his book launch.
    I love this podcast and start ups for the rest of us but the interview sounded just like a paid advertisement…sorry just my 2c.
