007: David Walker – Finding the right business idea to help him spend time with his wife and daughter

007 - David Walker

This interview is with David Walker, an awesome Parentpreneur who I’ve been working with through my accelerator program.

David is in the early stages of growing a new business that helps entrepreneurs to protect their brand using an online toolkit that takes you through the steps to ensure you have a significant amount of legal protection without having to hire a lawyer by the hour to do so! Through his law practice, previous startups, and this business, he has had a lot of experiences that I’m looking forward to sharing with you.

In this episode we explore his previous attempts with businesses, and why this new business is different.

If you currently have a business in which you are ‘trading your time for money’, or if you are struggling to set up a scalable business… particularly if you’ve found yourself often ‘going back to the drawing board’…. this episode contains some absolute gold for you.

Resources mentioned in the interview:

  1. Book: Cashflow rescue (David Walker)
  2. Role model: Elon Musk
  3. Top advice to parentpreneurs: “Everything will take twice as long as expected. Get clear on the customer’s problem, expect to change things as you go but build on that basic principle of the customer’s problem.” (David Walker)
  4. Brand protection advice: “Start with the end in mind. You might not want to protect things from the beginning but should expect to later. For example when coming up with a name make sure you look at what names already exist.” (David Walker)
