Who is Shaun Gold for 1,000? (Part 1)


Shaun Gold

We meet interesting entrepreneurs through this podcast and I'd like to introduce you to Shaun Gold, a self described polymath. Shaun's been involved with the bustling nightlife industry as a promoter in Miami, published 4 books, worked in the venture capital industry for Open VC, competed on Jeopardy on ABC, worked as a screenwriter

Throughout the conversation, you'll hear Shaun cite philosophers in response to open ended questions regarding entrepreneurship and his life decisions.

Valuable Life Lessons:

  • You have to be able to think and plunge and reflect
  • Be reliable, dependable, and able to deliver lessons from being a promoter in Miami.
  • Too much reflection and no action so you have to combine being able to reflect
  • Bang the wall everyday, the mountain will not be climbed for you.
  • "It's not you who's eating the idea, it's the idea that's eating you.

From my count, we recalled Plato, Tolstoy, Gerta, Aristotle
