Episode #777: Best Of: Marc Randolph: The Lessons Learned From Building Netflix

by | Aug 8, 2022 | Podcasts

In May of 2021 I had a very special guest join me on the podcast, and listeners commented that it was one of the most powerful episodes they’ve heard on the show. That’s why I wanted to bring back Marc Randolph, a veteran Silicon Valley entrepreneur, advisor, and investor. As co-founder and founding CEO of Netflix, he laid much of the groundwork for a service that’s grown to 150 million subscribers, and fundamentally altered how the world experiences media. This one was too good not to share again, and as always, please let us know what you took from this conversation with an amazing entrepreneur!

What We Cover in This Episode:

  • The amazing story of Netflix, Blockbuster and Amazon
  • Why you should be discovering what you are good at and what brings you joy
  • The real reasons Marc left Netflix to further his mentoring career
  • His mentoring journey and how he built his business based on commitment via equity
  • Ways to start seeing the progress in the person, not just the company
  • His mentoring style, plus how he now incorporates that into his podcast


“If success means anything, it is being able to pick and choose what you do.”

“For me, success as a mentor is not necessarily if the company succeeds”

“The most valuable thing you can do, especially as a mentor, is to be honest.”
