I wanted to start off this episode
by thanking Ian Cassel and Mike Schellinger for inviting me to the MicroCap
Leadership Summit. It was a fantastic event, where I met so many of you who
listen to each and every episode. I have to say, it was a huge thrill for me to
be recognized finally for not having the same name as the owner of the New
England Patriots. But in all seriousness, thank you so much for listening and I
was quite humbled by your kind words. If you like what you hear, I ask that you

Now, back to business - for this
episode of Planet MicroCap, I spoke with Sean Iddings, Co-Author of the book,
“Intelligent Fanatics Project.” Sean co-wrote the book with my Episode 1 guest,
Ian Cassel, and its purpose is to show how great leaders build sustainable
businesses. Why is this important and how does it correlate to MicroCap
investing? In almost every episode, we discuss the importance of management and
the CEO; these are the teams and individuals that we are betting on. The
“Intelligent Fanatics Project” highlights 8 managers who have turned small
businesses into very large ones. As Ian says in the preface to the book, “All
great companies started as small companies, and intelligent fanatics founded
most great companies.”
The goal for this interview is to learn
about “Intelligent Fanatics”, look for the common elements that these leaders
have, and what we can learn from them to become better MicroCap investors,
business people and entrepreneurs.
