They say success leaves clues, but it is up to you to identify those clues and execute on them. We all know execution is the hardest part of running a successful business.
We got you covered on the identification portion. This month we host Ben Horowitz who is an investor, entrepreneur and now author of "The Hard Thing About Hard Things."
Not to mention he is a big fan of Hip Hop, yeah that was him in The Tanning of America with Steve Stoute!
Many know Ben for his work with the Prominent VC firm Andreessen Horowitz aka a16z, which he cofounded with Marc Andreessen. Ben has been able to use his experience as an investor by funding companies like RapGenius, airbnb, facebook and so many more.
