Episode 40: New Technology

While VoiceOver Guy is busy trying out new careers on our time, Josh and Megan are considering the brilliance of simplification and cutting out unnecessary efforts. We also discuss how technology is an easy sell as a solution, but is often not the fix you need for your business issues. As if that isn't awesome enough, Josh shares advice from Jeff Bezos that has changed the way people run companies and we have a business idea that could change higher education for the better!
