Fizzle Show listener Bob Harper sent in a video calling us out. He’s a fan of the show but feels we haven’t been honest.
Bob’s putting his ass on the line for his business and his family and he wants some answers.
In this episode we hear his criticism and get into a mess of good stuff like:
Should I just start my business cold turkey, pull the rip chord and hope for the best?
Or should I do some financial planning and give myself a bit of padding?
What should I expect about the process of starting a business? How long should it take to start making money?
What role should my family play in how I pursue my business?
It’s a great episode. You’re gonna dig it. Let us know what you think in the comments below.

“It was not till I was in college that the idea of work finally broke free from the idea of making a living. Then the important question became not how to make money, but what to work on. Ideally these coincided, but some spectacular boundary cases (like Einstein in the patent office) proved they weren’t identical.”
TOPIC: Criticism and Its Discontents
This week, Dan and Merlin talk about criticism, people who don’t like you, and how much to let each have anything to do with the work you produce.
