Ahmed talks about the most important step in starting a successful business – idea validation. Most startups fail because they create a product that no one wants. You need to speak to your target customers, listen to them, find out what their problems are, and create a product that solves those problems
Com talks about the entrepreneur’s mindset, what differentiates a failed entrepreneur from a successful one, and what differentiates a 6-figure entrepreneur from a 7- or 8-figure entrepreneur. He does it in a personal way by talking about how his first nine startups failed.

He also goes over how to re-purpose existing content for different media channels – blog posts, social media updates, videos, podcasts etc.
