The Inevitable Box – A Founders LIVE Conversation with Author and Entrepreneur Clarke Allen

I recently sat down with entrepreneur and new author Clarke Allen to talk entrepreneurship and the process of writing a new book. Clarke has an incredible entrepreneurial story, one he shares throughout his newly released book called The Inevitable Box. The wide ranging conversation covers topics such as why Clarke choose entrepreneurship, (or did it choose him?), how Clarke got started in his business, how he managed the ups and downs of founder life, how he lost everything and built his company back to where it is today, as well as his experience through the book writing process and what it’s like to get something published.  You can grasp the sense of purpose Clarke has in both his approach to business as well as writing this book.

This conversation was especially exciting for me as he was honored to have written the Foreword of the book, a story Clarke and I touch upon in our conversation. Listen here.

Don’t Miss LivenUp – An online Entrepreneurship Festival on 7/15

Something cool is brewing on Founders LIVE.

We are announcing a new monthly event called LivenUp, a 1-day virtual festival on Founders LIVE that brings together the entrepreneurial community.

The first one takes place the entire day of this Friday, July 15th, starting at 8am. Mark your Calendars, and check out the schedule to determine which talks you’d like to tap into. The purpose of the event is to infuse wisdom, energy and connectedness into the larger community once per month. We think it will achieve that, and a whole lot more!

RSVP For LivenUP HERE.

The festival will consist of:

  • Four live streamed keynote conversations (a special guest + me) occurring throughout the day, live streamed on the site via Google Hangouts. If you cannot view them live, you will have access to various pieces of the content after the event.
  • Topics covered: Entrepreneurship, Branding, Marketing, Podcasting
  • A startup video pitch competition where viewers vote on their favorite to determine the winner.
  • Viewer generated posts and content relevent to the day’s topics
  • Group and one-on-one chat sessions so you can meet other people
  • many other small activities sprinkled in between for the community

The Keynote conversations will be unique, authentic and REAL, given from entrepreneurs or industry experts, in-depth perspectives on how to live and grow as an entrepreneur. They will be viewed via livestream on Founders LIVE. There will be live messaging/chat for viewers to communicate during the talks, as well as serving as a mechanism for asking questions to the guests at the end of their conversations. Members are also encouraged to submit their own content, posts, videos, etc.. on the home feed to add variety to the event.

LivenUp will create a critical mass of energy and interactions between entrepreneurs as well as provide content to be dissected and talked about on the platform over the preceding weeks leading up to the next LivenUP event in August.
