Summary

On this call with Dan Runcie, we talked about how he turned his passions into a must-read newsletter. Dan shared advice on how he iterated his way to a writing niche, some lessons he learned taking Trapital paid (then back), and how he’s leveraged his writing to help him elsewhere in his career.

Show Notes

After graduating from business school, Dan began blogging for fun about the intersection of business and hip hop. Inspired by a Harvard case study on Beyonce, he started writing his own case studies on the industry.

​Combining his passion for business and music evolved into his now-successful media company, Trapital. Today, Trapital’s readers include music executives, media moguls, and venture capitalists, including fans like Translation CEO Steve Stoute and SoundCloud CEO Mike Weissman.
