Tim asked, "So you didn't, you didn't want to hire anyone with kind of legacy, calcified thinking around how this business should or could be built.
Uh, how did those hires turnout overall?
Did they tend to work out well, I mean, were they for sales positions where they for other positions?
How did that experiment go?"
Takeaway: Hiring people with no prior experience and understanding long-term, community driven, word of mouth marketing. All understood to not give with the expectation of return.
It's a great big post for Friday: an in-depth analysis of the return on investment for various college degrees, including multiple degree levels and fields of study. educationdata.org/college-degree…

Takeaway: We associate "education" with "university" when they are not the same thing. The education system is broken and with the speed of innovation, you realistically could spend 4-years on a degree that doesn't exist or radically transformed into something different. Is this bad? No. It's the exact opposite -- this is amazing for all future students! Let's start with the fact that based on the research done by Education Data Initiative
Here are some mind-numbing statistics from this research paper:
They published another super interesting study recently called, "College Degree Return on Investment" where they discovered the following:
The team at Maven is on to something huge with cohort-based courses. They represent a new monetization model for Creators that is powerful for both the Learners and the Instructors.
Here's how it works:
Maven selects anywhere from 30 to 150 student applicants for courses that cost between $500 to $5,000 per student over a one- to six-week time period.
And since January, its instructors have sold over $1 million worth of courses.
50 million people became creators in the last decade. This force has transformed business and technology as we know it. These Creators have been extremely influential in this incredible space and are the leading experts on the subject they teach.
Who Are They?

Chris and Li has shared their unique perspective in popular Netflix documentary The Social Dilemma, and in books like No Filter by Sarah Frier and Billion Dollar Loser. This is from the podcast, Means of Creation, with some of the most influential Creators in the world!
Minted my first @mxtterart NFT — artwork wasn't revealed so viewed the metadata on @opensea, revealing its IPFS location, which I opened natively in @brave.
#web3 is cool.

Banking for the Creator Economy (Video)
The first episode of Where It Happens featuring Howard Lindzon -- the man behind StockTwits and early Robinhood investor -- helps us rethink the financial industry, places big bets on Web3, and presents a new way to think about investing. And, hosts Sahil Bloom and Greg Isenberg provide the Where It Happens community with a task that kept Greg up all night.
2. @_trwih with @SahilBloom and @gregisenberg just launched and should be on everyone's watchlist.
Fascinating ideas and topics. Favorite Ep. is the first one w/ @howardlindzon. Unbundling of Vanguard and the S&P still on the mind weeks later.
