Looking closely at other industries can give you great insights and ideas you can steal for your own business.
Although my guest today has a financial services background he’s enjoyed his most recent successes in the online digital world.
I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to talk to Neil and hear the story of how he created a new social media platform Natter.com. And learn from his experiences building digital products.
Listen to how Neil came up with the concept of Natter and how its simplicity could change your thinking style. Hear about useful concepts like MVPs – that’s Minimum Viable Products and how we could apply these to the financial services industry.
