Ian Lenny (@_Opensourced) is the founder of Opensourced, a company based all around helping people access the new economy. I met Ian a few years ago and he’s one of the most intelligent people on the subjects of the new economy, start-ups, getting the job you want that I know. This one is great, especially for those people looking for a new job or to finally do what they always wanted to do.
It was a pleasure recording this, so without further ado let’s welcome Ian from Opensourced.
