In this podcast session, I sat down with friend and serial tech entrepreneur Dmitry Buterin. Dmitry is the founder of three multi-million dollar businesses, including Wild Apricot — a leading membership management software company that he grew from 0 to $10M before it was acquired in late 2017 by Personify.

He’s also an angel investor and advisor to several tech and blockchain businesses one being BlockGeeks – a top online resource for anyone who’s interested in learning how to become a world-class Blockchain developer.

Dmitry also happens to be the proud father of Vitalik Buterin who is the creator of Ethereum, which – as of this writing – had a market cap of $46 billion, making it the second most valuable crypto network next to Bitcoin.

Whenever we meet our conversations tend to cover “a lot of ground” and this one was no exception. During the session, we covered a variety of topics including sabbaticals, personal growth, parenting, entrepreneurship, business culture and leadership, and even blockchain.
