On Doers is a conversation series about founders, beginnings, invention, visionaries and starting up. In the history of the world, there’s never been a better time to start a company or work on an idea. Never before has someone been able to go from idea to functioning company with just an internet connection and a MacBook. It seems like everyone we meet nowadays has an idea or wants to escape their “day job” and work on something they’re passionate about. Very few do. Lots of ideas, very few doers. And that’s who we’re talking to. The doers. The ones who are making it happen.
“The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It’s as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer.”
- Nolan Bushnell, founder of Atari
