About this episode

My guest this week is Joshua Wöhle, CEO & co-founder of Mindstone. Mindstone is an online platform that creates the best learning pathways from the best content available online. Imagine aggregating and curating all the best articles, podcasts, videos, and anything else, to help you learn faster, remember more, and develop your skills and expertise on that given topic of interest.

In a world with unlimited access to information and resources, Joshua and the Mindstone team want to provide anyone, anywhere in the world, with the tools, confidence, and motivation to take ownership of their own learning.

The mission of Mindstone is incredibly ambitious and complex. If you are one of those startup founders, or wantrepreneurs, that find yourself a bit stuck on how to move forward because you too have a massively complex road ahead of you because of industry or technology then this is the episode for you!

In this episode, you'll hear:

  • How being raised by a Pastor and a Philosopher has shaped how he pursues understanding of complex questions.
  • Why he dropped out of University twice before he was able to complete a degree program.
  • What drove him to launch a startup that was centered around making the internet safe for kids, yet he had no kids.
  • Why he thinks solving a problem based on personal need is not the only way to sustain passion and fullfillment during the entrepreneurial journey.
  • Why he would leave his first startup after a massively successful exit with a globally recongnized brand.
  • Why the current cultural foothold held by larger institutions needs to be disrupted.
  • How Joshua, and the Mindstone team, seek to democratize learning and shift how self-driven learning is perceived by the Corporate & Career sector.
