Philosophy Professor to Entrepreneur selling millions w/ help of teenage YouTube stars.
My January 2017 interview with David Barnett was created for radio, 710 KNUS. It’s so fun, so inspiring, that removed the breaks I’m bringing it back as a podcast. David tells the story of how he invented PopSockets… how, starting with a wacky kickstarter video, then through a mix of clever marketing, channel partners, and massive viral hype, PopSockets became a global hit, selling over 6 million units and still going strong. He had no plan. No money. He did have crazy courage. It’s a story for every would-be inventor who wonders, “can this be a business?”
