Doers 016 – Jacob Goodman on Buying a Company in College, Being “Unemployable,” and “Oh Sh*t” Moments

Jacob Goodman is the cofounder and CEO of Fresh Prints, a printing company that specializes in printing apparel and goods for groups like fraternities, college clubs, and social organizations. At 25 years old, he’s already bought and sold several companies and hired dozens of young people across the United States.

Jacob joins me to discuss a handful of entrepreneurial topics like what it was like to buy a company in college (and the relative value of college entrepreneurship programs), sell that company, buy another company, turn that company around, hire employees, and how to get ahead as a young person. We also discuss his biggest “Oh, sh*t” moments and the upside of being unemployable (hint: it makes you more likely to employ others).

Kudos to Justin Lafazan for the introduction to Jacob.

All episodes of Doers are produced by Lacey Peace. Today’s episode is late due to issues with Soundcloud yesterday.
