My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is with a man whose business partner first appeared on the show way back on episode 94
Now its his turn to join up his dots, and certainly when he starts his email request to appear with “I’m a technology entrepreneur who built an online course building software called LifterLMS. I used to live on a glacier in Alaska with a couple hundred sled dogs and managed a sled dog tour business there. You could only get there by helicopter” then you know that it is going to be an interesting conversation.
But its not just his icy beginnings that interest me, but more importantly what he is doing now and the struggle he has gone through getting here.
He is the founder of LifterLMS, an online resource to help people across the globe create their own online courses without all the techy struggle that boggs them all down.
“It’s time to stop stringing together separate software tools into a “Software Frankenstein” to get all the functionality you need. LifterLMS is the all-in-one solution many online course creators, teachers and entrepreneurs like you have been looking for.”
And I dont normally say this kind of thing in the introduction but this platform looks amazing and is so needed by so many of the people that I speak to that have all the knowledge but then lose their way within the set up.
Things are good for our guest, now as they should be…as he says “I’ve gone through hard times with little money, security, and lots of stress while having a wife and 2 wonderful homeschooled children that depended on me. Now things are great financially and in terms of stability, but there was a lot of struggle. I’m happy to share openly about the journey.”
So where do we start?
With the dogs and the woolly hats?
Or the moment that LifterLMS first popped into his head and the change in his life since that time?
Well let’s do all of them as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr Chris Badgett
During the show we discussed such weighty topics with such as:
Why you have to find a way of building the strengths where you have gaps, and the best way of doing this is finding a business partner that has those in abundance.
How Chris used to think that business and creating businesses was “evil” and how he overcame this by linking a business into the personal.
Chris shares how he manages a team across the globe, ensuring that everybody has the ability to flourish and get the work done.
Why it is such a good idea to get out to the market and validate your idea before ever spending a huge amount of money and time
