Ya Neva Know: you know what I mean? is a lifestyle podcast hosted by musician Mike Stud. It is a show about the meaning of life, the payoffs of positive thinking, and the ability to be able to stop and smell the roses. Pluto TV founder, Ilya Pozin (@ilyaneversleeps), joins us to talk about how to build a business, and how to stay humble when one comes into money and fame.
Moving to the U.S. when he was 8, Ilya Pozin continues to embody the grit and determination that many immigrant families hold when they decide to make a new life for themselves. He knows how to bet on himself, how to focus on one task at a time, and how to avoid the pitfalls that people can fall into when they think they’ve finally “made it.” When he and Mike talk later in the episode about how to handle large amounts of money, Pozin reiterates the importance of family to him.
Looking back on your memories and what you remember, you remember where you’ve been and who you’ve been there with. You don’t remember the phone you had six years ago.
Pozin is most known for his recent business, Pluto TV. Listeners will find his decision to remove the wide arrange of choice that all TV subscription services provided actually flipped the status quo of the current business model at the time. What was Pozin’s theory behind this? Through research, he applied to the paradox of choice to Pluto TV, while also deciding to make it free. In this specific example, Pozin revealed what happens to those who think about problems outside the box, and what can happen when someone fully invests themselves in their entrepreneurial vision.
Episode 29 can non-other be summed up as an hour and a half of wisdom on how to follow your dreams and how to stay grounded as a human being through it all. By the end of this, listeners will find that although many might call Pozin a genius or a millionaire, he would rather prefer to be known as a proud father.
