Ep 192 How To Crush Content Entrepreneurship | David Tao - Screw the Naysayers


David Tao is the Founder and CEO of BarBend a Forbes 30 under 30 recipient for media and has nearly a decade of experience building and running some of the biggest online brands.

BarBend, a fitness and strength-sports news site that has around one million monthly visitors and is the official media partner of USA Weightlifting, the sport’s national governing body. BarBend has raised $825,000 in seed funding. In addition to his work in the health & fitness industry, David has been a writer for Fortune and a contributor to Forbes, Slate, and numerous other outlets across the web and in print.

In this episode David:

  • Points out that most naysayers have a vested interest in you not succeeding. It could be monetary, a personal grudge, or that they have built emotional equity into being better than you.
  • Tells us why he hates the idea of asking youth what they want to do when they “grow up.”
  • Says that humans are multifaceted and that it’s now normal for people to live multi dimensional lives and multi-dimensional careers
  • Explains why he tries to do tasks that he’s been avoiding when he is tired
  • States that the worst excuse in the world is that you don’t have enough time
  • Talks about the origin of BarBend
  • And goes deep on the challenges and opportunities in content entrepreneurship

I loved this conversation for so many reasons. David is still a young entrepreneur (30) but his experience in content entrepreneurship puts him well ahead of the curve (at least compared to me and most of the people I know). This is a good one folks. Enjoy…
