LRS 007: Life Lessons from Startup Founders: Jack Dorsey, Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg

podcast episode lessons from startup founders like jack dorsey, elon musk and mark zuckerberg

Welcome to the 7th episode of The Let’s Reach Success Podcast. This one is dedicated to the lessons we can learn from successful startup founders.

I’ve been fascinated by such people for a long time now. I also think we can all replicate their success if we follow their advice, learn from their mistakes and develop their habits.

In the end, those who are super productive, consistent and motivated succeed. And one of the biggest inspirations is to see how someone else has achieved what you’re after.

In this episode of the show I’ll talk about 3 big names in the startup world – Jack Dorsey (creator, co-founder and chairman of Twitter and CEO of Square), Elon Musk (CEO and product architect of Tesla Motors, co-founder of PayPal, CEO and CTO of SpaceX, chairman of SolarCity, co-chairman of OpenAI), and Mark Zuckerberg (chairman, chief executive, and co-founder of Facebook).

  • What makes Jack Dorsey so successful [1:28]
  • The productivity routine that helps him work 16 hours per day (8 in each company) [3:54]
