• Why he regrets going International too soon.
• His thoughts on Branding.
“So you’ve got to build something that works really well. If you don’t get your product dialed in and you try and build a good brand around a bad product, you’re a scammer.” Asprey
• Advice on building a company on a shoestring budget.
“If you get a company that’s full of enthusiastic people who haven’t navigated these waters before, they’ll get there. But there might be some bodies along the way. But if you have a guide on the Safari who kind of knows where the potholes are, you might get there more intact and then spend less money. So it’s a question of capital efficiency.” Asprey.

“If you are not sending them out for a leadership training, or management training, where they can become both better at the business, but also better as human beings, you’re actually not getting a very good return on the investment that you make in your people. So I consider that to be part of being a good company.” Asprey.
- What to look for when picking your board of directors.
- Management mistakes to avoid.
- How to spot people that will help you scale.
“These are people who will share their jobs, the people who are secure in who they are and secure in what they do. Those are your people. And those are the ones who will help you scale and scale and scale”. Asprey.
- Why over-titling creates pain.
“Do you know how many sub-million dollar companies with four employees need three C-level officers? Zero. Hire directors because it’s a lot less painful.” Asprey.
