This is the 50th episode of the #PolyCast! To celebrate let's play a game while you're listening. Count how many times I say "So to speak" in this episode.
Today we are talking with David Lowe the entrepreneurial maverick himself! Founder of Uberpong, and cofounder of Guardia Medical. Host of the Blow It up Podcast , as well as the Amazon best selling book of the same name.
Today is episode 5 of the second season! We are here to talk about Walking the Tightrope of Entrepreneurship!
David is the true embodiment of the American Dream: an immigrant starting a company from scratch and making it a success. Not only does he know this process well, but it's through his passion to share his experiences and help others that makes him the ideal person to write books about startup businesses. Blow It Up is his first book and it quickly achieved Best Seller status on Amazon.

The Polymath PolyCast with Dustin Miller
This show is for the polymathic, the entrepreneurial, the multipotentialites, and the Innovators!
Now on Season 5!!
PolyInnovator (The overarching personal brand that the PolyCast is under), means Innovation Polymath, or future global changemaker. Created a Modular Degree curated with online courses and micro-credentials. You will find topics wide ranging in interests!
Between the OmniContent, and the guest interviews I have on the show, there are multiple formats for the #PolyCast. It can get a little confusing, so here is the series that you will see:
Bits of idea bursts, rants, explanations, and simply short form 3-10min episodes.
These don't happen often, but they are the medium sized episodes that may have a didactic feel to them. They are solocasts, with a bit of flare.
Each episode of the Omnicontent series starts with a blog post, turns into a slideshow, then a video, and with the video I extract the audio and turn it into a PolyCast!
The Polymath PolyCast Interviews
The interview and guest arm of the show, these episodes tend to be much longer, as they are interview discussions. They have been great, and the nuggets of knowledge anyone can get from them have been insanely awesome. Go take a listen!
If you would prefer the video version:
All in all they keep a similar polymathic feel, and stay true to the "Niche".... However the subniches can be essentially anything. Meaning the topics could be as well, so don't worry if one episode doesn't fit the bill. I'm sure another one will hit it out of the park!
