Have you heard of STATION F, a huge startup campus set in Paris? Read all about Brian Solis’s experience and even watch the video as he explores this formerly abandoned train station to show how it has transformed into a glorious new venue for tech startups. Brian was one of the resources mentioned in Tara Hunt‘s Hack the Process interview.

If so, you can learn a lot in the newest episode on Entrepreneur On Fire, where John Lee Dumas discovers how Nikitas Tsoukalis grew his business 80% every year. Tom Morkes, Nicaila Matthews, and Nicole Holland all told Hack the Process that they found inspiration thru John Lee Dumas’s podcast.

Process Hacker News for October 30, 2017

There are so many distractions in the news these days, from politics to natural disasters, that it can be hard to focus your attention on your own process. But as the latest Process Hacker Josh Haynam mentioned in his interview, having that routine to fall back on can make all the difference, and can actually help unleash your creativity.

We’ve got some great updates this week from the creative Process Hackers who’ve been guests on the show before, along with a new feature: Recommended Resources, which we’ll be using to share useful updates from people who have been recommended by our Process Hackers.

Succeeding by Helping Others Share Their Ideas with Loïc Le Meur on Hack the Process Podcast, Episode 28

Serial startup founder and lifestyle entrepreneur Loïc Le Meur has made a career out of discovering amazing people and helping them share their ideas with the world, from more than a decade running Le Web, a tech conference in Paris, to launching a new company called Leade.rs this year. He’s let his own personal passions and frustrations guide him from one business to the next, and according to him, that may be why he’s been so successful. Loïc will share with us his thoughts on why most people never manage to get their ideas out of their heads and into the real world, what he learned from the mistakes he made launching one startup that failed, and how his daily mindfulness practice helps him filter reality, recover from upsetting experiences, and maintain his trademark positive attitude.
