Why Relationships Are The Ultimate Scaling Strategy with Pour My Beer CEO Josh Goodman

Subscribe and Listen Now

Josh Goodman went from being a guy who couldn’t get a drink at a bar to building a multi-million dollar technology company that lets the guests pour their own beer, wine, and cocktails.

In 2014, his company PourMyBeer was drowning in over $100,000 in debt, with Josh as the only employee. Today, PourMyBeer’s self-serve technology is in 500+ locations worldwide, with over 12,000 taps in service across 23 countries!

What’s even cooler is that he built it from scratch – using all his life savings – and made over a million dollars in sales. His incredible journey, from personal hurdles to building a business empire, is detailed in his new book, Tap the Big Idea.

And even though Josh is crushing it in his business, he’s a super chill guy who always puts family first, no matter what. It’s not often that you come across someone who can balance work and family life so effortlessly, but Josh makes it look easy, and I’m thrilled to have him on the show today.

In our conversation, we dig into:

  • Strategies for avoiding the common trap of constantly feeling busy.
  • Why relationships are the ultimate scaling strategy.
  • How to strengthen your family bond during tough times.

Here are my favorite moments from our conversation:

  • Showing your kids what a hard-working and attentive parent looks like.
  • Why some families crumble under turmoil.
  • Hiring the right COO for your business.
  • Prioritizing relationships and trust.
  • Embracing the opportunity to learn from people ahead of you.
  • What can you do today that makes other people feel good?
