Ep 12 Part 2: That's A Wrap a Maria

When Maria joined the Tribe she was finally ready to take a 2 year business idea to the next level. In her application for the Tribe she told us that the one thing stopping her from doing this thus far was how little guidance she had on what resources would help her and the little knowledge she had of how to tap into the relevant network. We have one last big reveal for Maria – which we share at the very end of the episode. I really had no idea 12 weeks ago if this reveal would be possible before the end of the Tribe, and I’m so happy that it is. 12 weeks ago we asked two bold souls from The Startup Tribe to join us in our first ever podcast series. We had no idea then what these aspiring entrepreneurs would achieve- if they would achieve anything at all. Today marks the close of the Tribe and our final episode of Tribe Tales: Entrepreneurship. And I feel totally chuffed to say that both Armin and Maria have seriously nailed it.  To join our Tribe, visit escapethecity.org/tribes

Ep 12 Part 1: That's A Wrap w Armin

When Armin joined the Tribe he was full of ideas, but totally clueless as to how to build momentum on any of them. He almost didn’t say yes to being a part of the series because he was so afraid that if he failed – not only would he have to deal with that himself but the whole world would know about it as well. Looking back on these past 3 months with Armin, it’s unreal to see just far from the truth this is. His perspective on failure has drastically changed and his confidence has sky rocketed as a result of it. 12 weeks ago we asked two bold souls from The Startup Tribe to join us in our first ever podcast series. We had no idea then what these aspiring entrepreneurs would achieve- if they would achieve anything at all. Today marks the close of the Tribe and our final episode of Tribe Tales: Entrepreneurship.

Ep 10 Part 1: Finance & Funding w Armin

This week in the Startup Tribe we’re diving into different kinds of funding available to entrepreneurs. The key for any is quality. Don’t make this an impulse decision. Put time and effort into making your campaign epic, and the better your results will be. In Part 1 Armin has been busy! There are lots of updates with Vitamin Buddy this week, plus a slightly annoying challenge that has interrupted the process for him so we spend some time talking this out. We didn’t catch Maria this week, but you’ve got to listen to our episode with her next week because she has some huge news for us- news that will see her shooting forwards with her startup journey.

Ep 8 Part 2: Asking For Help w Maria

The startup community is far more generous and supportive than you might imagine. Those who have done well in their own startups have done so because they have been bold enough to use that community to ask for help and support when they need it. Which is why this week in The Startup Tribe we have allocated each accountability group their very own entrepreneurial guru to mentor them through to the end of the Tribe. In part 2, Maria and I talk about the importance of being open and vulnerable as a form of storytelling – particularly when trying to get new customers on board with your product. Map applications are closing soon. For more info on how to apply, head to escapethecity.org/tribes
