Episode Highlights

An innovative lifestyle yields many questions. Scott shared his own story inspired by Tim Ferriss’s Four Hour Workweek. This adventure and approach led to Scott’s book The Five-Day Startup

“To build a business you have to build a brand.” Scott noted that you don’t need tools like a website or a sales team to start a business. But this isn’t scalable. To grow a business, you need to build a brand that resonates with people.

Startup brands and founder brands. When these two play nicely with each other, it can lead to a big impact. However, when a founder’s brand gets in the way of a startup brand’s growth, it can spell disaster. OtterPR helps clients and brands optimize this relationship.

What brand has made Scott smile recently? Scott actually shared a smile from one of OtterPR’s clients—Law by Mike.
