Episode transcript: Rob Walling: In this week’s episode of ZenFounder, Sherry interviews none other than Jason Fried of Basecamp. It’s a really good interview. Sherry talks to Jason about all manner of things ranging from family life, to building a company slowly and deliberately. One thing that I really like about Jason is just how genuine he is. He really doesn’t have anything to hide. I met him for the first time in person at MicroConf just a few months ago. And I was struck by just how normal he is given his amazing success with Basecamp and his numerous New York Times bestsellers and everything he’s accomplished in his life. We just had a conversation about life, and about kids and family, and where we lived and just normal day to day things. And I liked that he was real and that carried on to the stage.

Episode 95: Leading Teams That Get S___ Done

Rob and Sherry talk about building healthy working relationships. They discuss hiring new people, how to manage well, and intrinsic versus extrinsic motivation. Support ZenFounder Episode Transcript Sherry Walling: So you wanna do a goal-setting episode? Rob Walling: That’s what you were saying. I said I didn’t want to do a goal-setting episode. Sherry Walling: I have goals. I’ll set goals. Rob Walling: What goals? Sherry Walling: I’m gonna take a nap, that’s my goal. Rob Walling: Your goal is to go back to sleep? Sherry Walling: Yeah. I’m having a really weird sleep day. Rob Walling: What’s going on? Yeah, you woke up and then went back to sleep. That was very odd. Sherry Walling: Well, I’ve been diligently working on this writing project, and I’ve been getting up at 5:30, which is a newer schedule for me. Usually I’m up at 6:30. So I did my writing, and got some good stuff done, and then I was just so tired. So I went back to sleep from 7:00 to 8:00. Rob Walling: That’s kind of a good way to do it, I think. Sherry Walling: Well, normally that’s my workout time, but I slept instead of working out. Rob Walling: Yeah. But you got stuff done, because by the time it was 7:40 or 7:20, you already had a bunch of stuff done, so it’s not a bad way to do it, I think. Sherry Walling: Since my sole ambition in life right now is to go back to sleep, what else are we gonna talk about? Because I don’t think that our listeners really will be inspired by that as a goal. Rob Walling: Yeah. As admirable as it is. We wanna talk about building a healthy working culture, ...
