0️⃣1️⃣ The most powerful thing you can do is say "no" to things that are *good* but not *great* - Nick Crocker [The Countdown #1]
Welcome to the FINALE of The Countdown series on The Australian Investors Podcast, where we have counted down the 15 most popular and impactful interview episodes ever released on The Australian Investors Podcast. Going all the way back to 2017!
At #1, the top spot, and holding a special place in my (Owen) mind, is this conversation with Nick Crocker, a partner at Blackbird VC.
While Joe Magyer's podcast, which came in at #2, was easily the most impactful on the community, this interview with Nick was the most impactful on me.
It's probably because Nick and I spent 2 hours at the borderlands between starting and running a business that has impact, and identifying people who you can invest with to make their dream a reality.
As a humble founder himself, Nick's backstory is very unique amongst guests of the show. As a result of his foundational experiences in business, journalism and music; plus his time spent at Australia's most recognisable venture capital firm, Blackbird VC, Nick brought uncommon concepts and wisdom to the show. And to me.
You'll love this episode if you are passionate about the journey of entrepreneurship, the culture of business, team building, investing in early stage companies, and what it takes to succeed.
Note: you can access the show notes and resources, and see that the full interview was first published 22nd of January 2023:
