The parallels between sport and business produce great lessons for both sides of the fence. World surfing champion, big wave rider, entrepreneur and all round legend, Tom Carroll joins TMBS this week to share his insights on fighting fear and controlling emotion in high pressure situations.

If nothing else, Tom’s story is a seriously good yarn – enjoy!

Couldn’t find the light switch this morning, but podcasting in the dark wasn’t that bad! Great line up today; the George boys from Autonado, Daniel Borg (Psyborg), Alison Michalk from Quiip and Valiant Finance (a TMBS workspace fintech).

Enjoy!

A couple of young blokes having a crack – that’s what it’s all about! Dave Liston from OURGO.co is helping young Aussies take back their economic futures and building a nice little business in the process.

James Jordan (aka Danny Burrito), is also back on the show to talk about refocusing on the commercial kitchen sharing market. It’s a killer model and he’s looking for funding, check him out – http://www.sproutkitchens.com/.

A David and Goliath story this week! Ned Moorfield, the CEO and co-founder of ridesharing service, GoCatch tells TMBS how to compete with an 800 pound gorilla (Uber in Ned’s case). MB also probes Ned for his insights on marketplace models, creating a point of difference and raising millions in funding from all tiers of investors to fund the growth of his business.

Marketplace models can attract big valuations, but still need careful thought before jumping in. David Vitek, co-founder and CEO of Hipages, knows all too well the challenges of being an intermediary and shares insights on how to build value for both your customers and investors.

With all the great talent we’ve had over the past 12 months, we just had to go back and do a ‘Best Of’. Pure gold from; Jules Lund, Grant Williams, Joe Hockey, Ange Postecoglou and Todd Sampson.

Hope you all enjoy!
