Reid Hoffman needs little introduction. He’s the cofounder of LinkedIn, former PayPal executive, author, podcaster, mentor, and all-around standout personality in the entrepreneurial world. His podcast Masters of Scale is one of the most successful business podcasts on the planet and he’s recently launched a book of the same name which curates the hundreds of interviews from the show into practicable business wisdom.

In this episode, listen to Nathan chat with Reid about:

  • What inspired the Masters of Scale podcast and the book
  • The importance of entrepreneurs to “always be learning”
  • Why balance is a mistaken goal for entrepreneurs
  • What he thinks Elon Musk’s superpower is
  • His intense period as an executive at the “PayPal Mafia”
  • Why he started LinkedIn instead of taking a year off
  • And much more scaling and entrepreneurship advice…
