- [03:46] – Worst Entrepreneurial Moment: It was Saturday afternoon, Tree was in her lawyer’s office and she was declaring bankruptcy.

- Imagine you woke up tomorrow morning in a brand new world, identical to earth, but you knew no-one. You still have all the experience and knowledge you currently have, your food and shelter is taken care of, but all you have is a laptop and $500 dollars. What would you do in the next 7 days? – “I would open up that computer and I would look up local places to buy a hammock. I would spend part of that $500 on the hammock and I would close my computer and I would lie on that hammock for 7 whole days”
