Episode 79: Focus on a single task until it's done, Hamid Shojaee.
Hamid is addicted to the high of making products that people love to use. Sometimes, the users even pay for them, which is how he funds his enormously high cost of body-hair removal. Along the way, he’s made a couple of companies including Axosoft and Pure Chat and has helped Arizona’s tech scene create its voice with AZTechBeat.com. He’s passionate not only about achieving financial success in business but also success in health and wellness as an owner and also for his employees.
