Existential dread, screen time, drugs and venture capital - July 10, 2019
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?

- 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?
