As entrepreneurs, our job isn’t just to create a business that makes money. It’s to add value to people’s lives.
This is The Psychology of Entrepreneurship,
a highly produced, revealing audio docuseries that follows me, Ronsley Vaz, and my guests, as we strive to go inside & unravel the inner workings of the mind of an entrepreneur, artist, athlete, academic; to decipher what is the psychology of our decisions.
If you are an entrepreneur (BTW we consider that mothers are the original entrepreneurs), and would like to understand why we do certain things in certain situations, and if small changes in thinking can deliver massive amounts of results in success and happiness, then this podcast is for you.
We’re presenting you with another “uncut” volume. There’s a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes making this audio docuseries. We put things together in quite a unique way, which means, unfortunately, we can’t fit everything into each volume. I find myself wishing the audience could get the entire context of the conversations I have with these amazing guests. So this volume is the uncut conversation I had with Noom Dara. Through this organic format, you really can see what an amazing, humble, brilliant human this guy is.
Noom wants to improve the quality of life for people all over the planet, by offering value.
He doesn’t want us to use his real name, so we won’t. But his friends call him Noom, so we will too. Noom grew up in a large family of business owners. His mother ran a successful sales office in the US. And his father owned successful factories in Thailand. He is consistently surrounded by entrepreneurial energy.
After receiving a bachelor's degree in Applied Physics from the University of California, Noom went on to work alongside his father in Thailand. It was during this time that he quickly realised he wanted to follow his own path and become his own boss. Today, his sole mission is in improving people’s quality of life in a meaningful way.
In this special uncut volume, Noom goes into in-depth detail of the innovations he’s made in Thailand. Every idea, every product, every business decision is all designed to add value to the people and their families. We talk a bit about a painful experience he had of being betrayed by a business partner and what he’s learned from it. We talk about how Thai culture has shaped him and how he runs his business. And most importantly, we talk about what drives him and what kind of legacy he hopes to leave. This is a deep conversation, and I’m so excited to share it with you in its entirety.
Also within this volume:
- Mosquitos in Thailand and what Noom has done about them
- Why Noom didn’t want to follow in his dad’s footsteps
- Why he tried his hand at slippers
- The pitfalls of scaling a business
- Verifiable Trust
- The importance of a system of checks and balances
- What keeps Noom up at night
- What he wants his legacy to be
- To the moon and back 50 times
