PODCAST: The insane success of a Irish video game maker and the 24-year old from Carlow who made €40 million selling whiskey
The Capital B is back and the line-up this week is a seductive mix of millionaires, secondary school drop-outs and baked bean moguls.
JOE's business show has landed and this week the founder of Ireland's most valuable tech firm, Bobby Healy, leaves his gold TESLA outside to be egged and drops in to talk with presenter Nick Webb about being held at gunpoint in Mexico, loosing millions after 9/11 and why being Irish is the greatest asset in any business situation.
Dropping out in transition year to work in a cash and carry, moving to New York as a teenager to make it and ending up €40 million richer, is the classic schoolboy dream but it is Illann Power's reality. The 24 -year-old from Carlow talks being a bad-ass salesman and using old tricks to get new results.
Business metaphors have never been more laced with innuendo as the panel talks beating off competitors, turning down tempting offers and focussing on bread and butter to make the dollars rain
Fact or fiction, do baked beans really make you fart? Sarah from coolbeans saunters in to the studio to answer these hard truths and explain how she went from an accounting firm to operating a bean machine at Irish festivals.
