I interview Blake Callens in Episode 8. Blake is a former US Army Noncomissioned Officer who has served in Iraq and Afghanistan. He is also the architect and co-inventor of the Webcam Social Shopper, is a Webby award winner, and is co-inventor on an e-commerce based U.S. Patent. Blake is currently the co-Founder of the Raleigh Entrepreneurial Acceleration Lab (REAL) and the Lead Engineer for SpotTrot.
Blake shares some amazing insights into start-up life and gives some great advice. He says some of the best advice can be found by reading Mark Cuban’s 12 Rules for Startups.
