So, Here's My Story... is the only business podcast that promises wildly useful lessons from the absurd, the poignant and the seemingly irrelevant. This project arose out of a burning hatred of bullet point blogs, canned solutions and highlight-reel business conversations that look nothing like the realities of leadership. Business is messy and unpredictable. Business has depth and nuance. Business is more than spreadsheets. Business is stories.

One of the best business podcasts
Eliot and Jodi are FANTASTIC! I love listening to their stories, because while they not only highlight the things we normally don't like talking about, they give real purpose as to why that makes them so important. They make the show enjoyable to listen to, and add fun into the topic. I will be subscribing for sure.
Do you want to be better?
You're probably listening to this podcast because you want to be a better business person. Jodi and Eliot will get you there... but you'll also become a better leader, and somewhere along the way you'll realize you became a better person, too.
Jodi asks questions that prompt Eliot into really meaningful stories, and then picks parts out to make them applicable to real life business situations.
