LinkedIn Co-Founder Reid Hoffman Creates a New Podcast Offering Wisdom on Nurturing & Scaling New Businesses

How do you create and eventually scale a successful business? It's a complicated question. And you can do worse than get answers from Reid Hoffman. He's currently a partner at the venture capital firm Greylock Partners. But you probably know him best as the co-founder of LinkedIn, the professional social network site recently acquired by Microsoft for $26 billion dollars. In his new podcast, Masters of Scale, Hoffman looks at how companies grow from zero users to a gazillion by interviewing fellow Silicon Valley entrepreneurs who have crossed that bridge. Guests include Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg & Sheryl Sandberg, Netflix’s Reed Hastings, and Google’s Eric Schmidt, among others.

Even if you work in a business with more modest aspirations, there's some wisdom you can take away from these wide-ranging conversations. Hoffman's conversation with Airbnb's CEO Brian Chesky (above) about hand-crafting customer experiences would help you run almost any business. You can find the Masters of Scale podcast on iTunes, StitcherEntrepreneur.com, Spotify, and Google Play. Also find courses from other seasoned entrepreneurs right below.
