Welcome to Episode of the Rogue Startups Podcast. This week Dave discusses his top take-aways from Microconf, a popular “self funded” conference held every April to connect founders who are creating online businesses and doing it with non-typical startup funding methods.

Dave’s top topics include a talk from Steli from Close.io on pursuing the deal until the last door closes and one from Joanna Wiebe of CopyHackers on the importance of optimizing not just your headline but your buttons as well.

Rob Walling calls in with a voicemail and talks about the why he thinks it’s crucial to avoid distractions and double-down on your focus.  We add our thoughts on systematizing your business. Are you making the most of your time and sourcing out things that take away valuable time from what you really need to be doing?
