    I also bought a couple of Noah's products. I am going to do the $1 exercise tonight and I will post how much I get. I know I will get paid.

    Noah drove home very important points learned from his own failures and forces us to think about what may be the cold truth...not all ideas are good ideas. It was a nice practical reminder to validate ideas before too much time or money is wasted.

      Hey Aaron, I agree, he drove it home and then parked it, got out of the car, closed the garage door, got into the car and drove right through it. lol :) Thanks for coming@

    Noah is a great, he had some valuable information and it will help me a lot in my business. I'm sure other people have said this but his attitude could have been a more positive and friendly. I also appreciate his directness.

      Hey Diego, I'm super glad you came out. Noah has that kind of attitude but I think it's that roughness, go-get-em', jolt-of-an-attitude that has made him very successful. I personally think that every entrepreneur who speaks at our events has a unique approach to everything, so I'm actually really pleased he was himself. In fact, I think he could have been a bit more rough on the crowd ;) -- It's that NY coming out of him maybe, :)

    Hi, did anyone get the taco link for the nine validation technics? Great talk, bouncing ideas off other people was very valuable. Thanks

    So sorry to miss this, but a late afternoon appointment might make me late. Better to leave that spot open for the punctual!

    This is going to be awesome. Noah is a great entrepreneur and an amazing person. AppSumo has done so much for my personal development and business as well. I hope to see you all there! Spending time with Noah like this is awesome, it's totally worth ever cent you spend (oh wait, it's free!). It would be silly to miss this meetup Austin Entrepreneurs. So make sure you make it out.
