So Money - Episode 447

Jason Nazar

Co-Founder and CEO of Comparably

Today’s guest is the co-founder and CEO of Comparably, a young website that’s trying to make workplace compensation transparent! Want to learn how much you should be getting paid? Of course! We all want that! Co-founder Jason Nazar is here to talk about how he is growing the site to become THE go-to destination for learning about salary and compensation and, simultaneously demystifying our awareness around much we can and should be making.

Jason knows how to build successful businesses, as an active tech entrepreneur and investor. Before Comparably, he founded Docstoc, the largest content site to help small businesses which he later sold to Intuit. He also created Startups Uncensored, the longest running and most widely attended tech gathering in SoCal.

In the interview we discuss why is it SO hard for us to talk about our salaries? Sometimes, we’re more willing to talk about how much we’re in DEBT than what we earn. Plus, Jason shares why he always sensed his family was POOR when in reality they were not. And the WRONG moves he made that helped him build a business RIGHT.
