Learning from Tea with Strangers with Ankit Shah on Hack the Process Podcast, Episode 10

You might not see the concept of spending an hour or so chatting with strangers over tea as a business opportunity, but maybe you will after you listen to Ankit Shah, Founder & CEO of Tea With Strangers, tell us how he discovered and recognized the real need for his unusual organization by accident. Ankit thoughtfully frames his perspective on the difference between a traditional business with company values posted on their “about us” page, and the truly values-driven structure that emerges when something the world needs attracts and supports the people who tend it and bring it into existence. You’ll hear how Ankit keeps himself motivated, how he measures the success of Tea With Strangers, and why he wouldn’t go back and try to change the mistakes he might have made along the way.
