- ZirconCode from Reddit says: “I want to say gimmicky, but actually quite inspiring.”
- @TheCraigHewitt: Just subscribed to the @bootstrapduel podcast and can’t wait to catch up on the first few episodes. Absolutely brilliant #podcast concept!
- Had a clarification from DT of demandgenesis.com that they aim to keep people long term, just that they scope out the first 3-6 months of their demand generation offering.
- Thanks to Dustin Overbeck and Adrijus Guscia from the DC for the kind words on twitter.
- Great to have Justin McGill in our slack room – the guy is a baller, 7 fig agency now productized outbound leadfuze.com based on software he’s built. And our first review, although thanks to iTunes, we can’t see it yet.

- WIN – fixed bugs with replyboss.com.
- WIN – turned down two projects that didn’t fit focus.
- FAIL – on our about page, I have not been able to convince our listeners there is so much as a ray of hope that I’ll win this competition. To the two who have voted for me so far, you are the smartest people in our audience.
Next week in 30 seconds
11:30 – Rich – prospecting 100% focussed on marketing agencies and completing work to get case study.
