Jesse shares with us about how he started selling Thigh Masters online in high school and has been growing businesses ever since.
Throughout the interview we talk about hiring in Ukraine vs. America, recruiting and work/life balance. Jesse shares in thorough detail about his hiring process, and then chats a bit about why he thinks Slack is completely inefficient. Lastly, Jesse shares the details about his newest project Crickets.org a business dedicated to informing people about edible crickets and insects as an alternative source of protein.
It is a high-energy podcast and a very good time chatting with Jesse.
