Having created $100B+ in valuations and almost 100 startups valued at over $100M each, Y Combinator is now a brand, a symbol of success, and a guiding start for the others. Back in 2009 though, it was still a fairly unknown company, doing something weird and different from the typical venture. Listen to Paul Graham, the founder, talks about YC, it's future potential, and ways in which founders could stay mean and lean to crate the next billion-dollar company.Looking for a new job in tech?  Try Triplebyte today ->

 ~ In this episode ~* Why are people searching for porno and landing on Smash Notes? Turns out, there is a podcast called "My Dad Wrote A Porno" and it is hilarious. You have to listen to this week's episode of the Smash Notes podcast to get the juicy audio bites, but the gist is this - someone's dad wrote a really bad porn script and self-published it. The script is so awful, it's hilarious. Jamie, the son of a 60-year-old "movie" writer made a podcast about it.

* Will starting a company make you happy? Aline Lerner is the founder of Interviewing.io and she came on the Indie Hacker podcast to talk about her journey. Although startups can be hard and unpredictable, she said that at least it's a great distraction from feeling existentially purposeless.

* How long does it take to build a business? To each their own, but the founder of The Broke Backpacker spent nearly 10 years traveling the world until he took his business seriously and went from making $1,000 a month to over $200k every month. When there is a will, there is a way.

* How do you teach third-graders about consent? You don't! Just kidding. It turns out kids are curious for all kinds of knowledge and they are capable of discussing topics beyond what you might think is their limit. Although consent is typically associated with sex, it's not actually about sex, but a relationship between individuals and everyone's personal level of comfort. If you can find a way to discuss an otherwise taboo topic on an appropriate level, kids resonate and engage.

* Speaking of which, how can you engage a kid who otherwise doesn't want to learn? Easier that it might sound. The key is to use the concept of "cold calling." Take a look at this week's segments for an explanation of what it is, and how to use it the right way - Smash Notes - Top Podcasts for 2019 - Week 29Notable links:Multi-millionaire at 27.

Thank you for subscribing to Smash Notes podcast. This week's episode is one of the best to date.Here is what's included. Happiness: Sahil Lavingia is the founder of Gumroad, a company that helps creatives make money from their passion. Sahil has gone from being the second employee at Pinterest, to being featured on Forbes 30 Under 30, to living in a small town in Utah with a failing startup and fading glory in hands. All of that has taught him a thing or two about life, and the universe.  Conclusion? Life is a series of distractions from existential dread. Startups: Jonathan Sposato is a Seattle-based entrepreneur, and the only founder to have ever sold two companies to Google. He has been a local investor and leader for a number of years, and at one point decided he would only be investing in women entrepreneurs.What makes women entrepreneurs so special?Related: How do you get the best deals in venture capital? Education & Parenting: How much screen time is too much for your kids? There has been a lot of articles lately talking about screen time, how awful it is for the kids, and how rich people actually don't let their kids do any of it. But, one successful millionaire has a very different view. David Heinemeier Hansson thinks it's okay to let kids have as much screen time, as they want. He might be right, what do you think? Health and Fitness: Did you know cigarettes are really bad for you? Yup, cigarettes give you cancer! But did you know that  coffee can kill you too? Please don't try this at home.
