Welcome to the pilot episode of From Idea to Done. We like to talk about big ideas, companies that are winning and those that aren’t, and current events in our crazy world of software startups
VO: Get ready for your semi-regular dose of random ideas from the guys at Codelation. We like to talk about big ideas companies that are winning, and those that aren't along with current events in our crazy world of software startups. So come along with Erick and Josh, who challenged you to think big, start small and turn your ideas into something on this episode of, from idea to done.
Erick: All right. I think we're just gonna kind of jump into, Josh, what are we, what are we doing here today?
Josh: Are we doing it?
Erick: It's recording? I hope.
Josh: Well, I wanted to welcome everyone to our new podcast, from idea to done to where we bring you actual advice every day to help move your startup forward.
Erick: And this kind of sprung from, from just a marketing standpoint, and that kind of gets into our introductions. When I came on, I wanted to start a little, a little talk show that we would air and then I'd bring on guests of people that I liked and people doing great things in our community. And after the first couple shows on, I was like, well, you don't even talk about what you guys do at all. And so marketing fail, but at the same time, one of our core values is community. And I liked that show, but I do want to highlight what we're doing as a marketer. And I think you, as an owner, wouldn't mind that as well.
Josh: Yeah. I, I certainly wouldn't mind where people know what we do.
Erick: And I think that what's interesting for me working here is we have such a different perspective on stuff. Like I'm the idea, ear dreamer, marketing communicator, that's me. And then I work with this team of people that are completely shifted focus where they're like, okay, this is your idea. And their whole business is basically taken an idea, a good idea, tearing it apart and making it into a real thing. And so that's kind of the basis or base idea of kind of the show here.
Josh: And who are you?
Erick: Oh, I'm Erick Roder and business development for Codelation. Now that none of my guests had ever asked that before. So that's, that's kind of exciting.
Josh: And I'm Josh Christy, the founder of Codelation. And just to kind of echo Erick's words is, uh, we work with a lot of early stage startups and we just kind of wanted to take the opportunity to start sharing some of their experiences, our experiences, um, with anyone that's willing to listen and really looking to break this down into five different categories of information that we're trying to try to help people with. Um, the first one that we're looking at is just general advice. And this is where, uh, Erick and myself are going to share how we help advise our clients with their startups.
Erick: Right? And I, that even if people don't follow the, it's always good to talk about it. And that's kind of, that's the thought behind that kind of category. Another one that we want to do is just interviews. We want to interview some of our customers. We want to friend base to just kind of share what they're doing in their business and, and to get a little bit better feel on projects that we've actually worked with. And then this is kind of taken the marketer and the nerd, the next couple ones I'm going to, I thought of this random episode idea where we take things like the moon landing or inventing cars and have someone say, oh, Hey, I have this idea. We should look at the moon. We should go there and then have Josh kind of reverse engineer. Cause that's what he does too.
Josh: Yeah. If we could take our strategy for our clients and apply it to something that was done, you know, in the past, like Eric said, the moon landing or, Hey, what's a combustion engine. I don't know where this part of the series is going to go, but I think it could be kind of, kind of a fun exercise to not really have a direction and just talk about random stuff. Um, and then to flip 180 degrees the other direction, as I read a lot of books and I've had a lie down, I've had a lot of people tell me it would be really great just to get a quick five minute synopsis of what is this book about and should I care? And so we're going to do that was my sense. Yes. We're going to share our favorite reads, um, that you can apply to your startup. So that's, that's the fourth, uh, kind of category that we're going into.
Erick: And then the last thing we really want to talk about is just kind of current events. I think it's our job in our field to stay up to what's going on in the world of business and the world attack. And let's chat a little bit about some random ideas. And so, yeah, I guess the people people listening right now and just kind of go into our mom, close friends, if you just want to listen to the next few episodes, just to, just to, just to give us a shot. I think it, It should be fun.
Josh: All, all tens of you, people that are hearing this right now. Uh, yeah, we, we've got, uh, we're going to try to keep this on a daily ish schedule. Um, so we'd love to hear what you guys think of the format of the show. Um, what you'd like for us to talk about, um, find us on your favorite social media channel, uh, or directly at codelation-bedrock.flywheelstaging.com. And we'd love to hear what you guys want us, want us to be talking about. So, um, we're going to try to keep real episodes coming up. We're going to try to keep all of our episodes right around that five minute mark. And I see we've just tripped over that. So, um, I guess that's all for today. Perfect. All right.
