EP 013: 6 startup lessons from Breaking Bad


In this episode, we talk about business lessons that we can learn from Breaking Bad. Walter White was an entrepreneur from whom we could learn a thing or two, wouldn't you say? Our discussion today is inspired by a blog post by Renée Warren titled "5 startup lessons from Breaking Bad." Renée draws some striking analogies from this hit TV show that teach some valuable business concepts we can apply to our ecommerce businesses. In addition to the 5 lessons that Renée has written about, I share one additional lesson for a total of 6 lessons.

I also make sure to discuss some specific examples of practical ways to apply these lessons to an ecommerce business.

This episode mentions a ton of links to interesting articles and tools, so check them out below.
