Advice For Builders (with Julien Smith)

Creative pros are by nature builders. We love to make things, play with ideas, and put new concepts into the world where they can be experienced by others. But, the process of building new things can be daunting, and selecting which ideas to build can be confusing.

Today’s guest is a certainly a builder. His most recent projects are Breather and Practice, for which he just raised a $10 million round of investment led by Andreessen Horowitz. On this episode we discuss the nature of building, how to choose the right ideas, and how to spot trends before they become mainstream.
