The success story of Netflix is legendary. It was a little startup that became a huge success. Today every business school and entrepreneurial seminar likely spends some time talking about the extraordinary success of Netflix. So you might find it surprising that the founder was leaning towards starting a shampoo-by-mail and a custom-dog food-by-mail business before he decided on renting videos. My first guest today is Netflix co-founder and first CEO Marc Randolph who tells the Netflix success sage firsthand. Marc is the author of the book That Will Never Work: The Brirth of Netflix and the Amazing Life of an Idea (https://amzn.to/2WjwPeb).
