015- Last of the Boomers encourages Entrepreneur success- Adam Curry - BOOMERS for STARTUPS

Podcast: Play in new window | Download Select this link to listen to the audio episode. Many Startup Entrepreneurs try different business models in their attempt to leave their full-time day jobs and become a full-time Entrepreneur, so that they can enjoy their passion, support themselves with their small business and deliver value to their customers. Celebrity and Podcaster Adam Curry is such an Entrepreneur. Born in 1964, he is “on the cusp” of the Baby Boomer range, and is one of the “last of the official Baby-Boomers.” He also has had a history of financial success in making millions, then spending them all, and then finally of being an Entrepreneur that found happiness by living his passion as a “Government Legislation Analyst” in his latest business of podcasting with his show of No Agenda. After over 6 years of building a loyal audience, he  has proven that the road to his full-time Entrepreneurship is with the business model which he has proven successful — known as the VALUE-FOR-VALUE model. But to many others in the New Media arena, Adam Curry is also known as the “Pod-Father” –  since he and Dave Winer created the ability to implement successful podcasting. It was this breakthrough that allowed him to explore audio podcasting and create a show that still has a tremendous worldwide following of loyal listeners (known by Adam as “producers” — like the ones in the Hollywood model of entertainment). This came after a career with MTV and broadcasting. His media experience saw him as part of Mevio.com, (previously known as Podshow) with different podcasts that he also started (like the Daily Source Code). However, almost seven years ago, he started his flagship podcast show called NO AGENDA with his co-host, columnist John C. Dvorak. As an entrepreneur, he has developed the format and content of the show. You will notice that Adam Curry has several “firsts” in his success as a full-time podcaster-entrepreneur: (1) He provides docoumented deconstruction, information of value and entertainment; (2) He created his own position and title as a Government Legislation Analyst. Yes, he actually READS, analyzes and deciphers each governmental bill, proclamation, executive order, and United Nations document–and he even highlights the pertinent sections that can provide you, the listener, with critical thinking and and intelligent basis for making decisions and being well-informed. The documents and other valuable information are part of his extraordinary show notes, which are free to the listener from his podcast web site. (3) He has proven that his business model of VALUE-FOR-VALUE can be a successful one (and so far, a sustainable one) by building a loyal audience and receiving willing donations for the value that the audience receives. You will find out in this audio episode what the factors are of his success. In turn, he recommends that Boomers who are aspiring entrepreneurs should also consider going into the New Media environment to start their own businesses — within podcasting, screencasting or videocasting, which are some examples. From his own experience as a Boomer, he recommends that one should not allow “age-ism” (or age discrimination) to threaten or scare off a Boomer from making the decision to launch into this area — one in which the investment costs for entry are small and the learning of skills are within the means of most. His jingles are simple, but catchy; his audio clips are thought-provoking; and even though he sometimes has a nickname as “Crackpot,” we wish him the best of luck with his proven model by saying to Adam:  “IN THE MORNING!” To find out more about him, Adam suggests that you may want to see how he is perceived by others from the content published in wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adam_Curry.
