GWJ RL #11: Importance of work friends, socially isolated America, the religion of economics, and much more!

Hi Tribe,
I hope y'all had a great week.
This week we’re going to hear from the founder of Five Guys. What I like about his story is that he didn’t have a grand vision when he started the company. He just wanted to serve burgers and fries. He didn’t get caught up in writing a 100 page business plan and thinking about every contingency. He experimented with a small burger shack and moved on from there.We all have projects we want to get started, but we don’t because we want to launch something perfect instead of launching something that’s good enough. Look at your product launch as an alpha that will always have bugs, but odds are you won’t be able to find those bugs until you put it into someone else’s hands.Speaking of alpha testing, I’m in the process of creating an online email course with You can find one of my lessons from the networking course here. Let me know what you think.
