Many of us dream of going it alone one day - of shedding the 9 to 5 and trading in your cubicle for a desk in a garage. Society lionizes the likes of Steve Jobs and Elon Musk, and it's incredibly tempting to imagine what life might be like as a successful entrepreneur.

In today's episode, I speak with Brett Fox, a seasoned high-tech executive and entrepreneur who has made a career of launching successful businesses and turning around foundering ones. He answers all the most important questions about launching a successful startup, and shares particular insight into the importance of having a fantastic founding team, why clarity of thought is critical, and why the COVID-19 pandemic might just be the perfect time to launch a new venture.
