About this Nugget: 

This nugget was pulled from episode 147 from an interview with Nathan Richardson. It’s on taking time off, helping people in need and coming back a better entrepreneur.

Subscribe to Bank On It on iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, Spotify and iHeartRadio and you’ll get these nuggets delivered every Wednesday morning.

In this nugget we have Nathan Richardson, at the time of recording the interview he was in the middle of building TradeIT, a company he’s since had a successful exit from. He was burnt out, so he went to Libya to help rebuild the infrastructure, such as schools, fresh water and supported women who faced gender based violence. Helping people in such need gave him the strength to come back and build again. 

What is a nugget of the week?: 

The host John Siracusa has recorded over 270 episodes as the host of the Bank On It & Before the A fintech podcasts where he interviews founders building the future of fintech and the VCS/Angels who fund them. 

With each interview there’s this wow moment when the person interviewed has shared something really special, unique or a reminder on how founders or investors should think. So, here we are delivering those moments to you in the form of a bite sized nugget.
