Hugh's podcasts are great tools for entrepreneurs! The topics come from real world experiences (his and his guests) -- not just theories dreamed up in a class. A must listen for anyone planning a business, whether it's out of the country or not.
Interesting and inspiring
Highly recommended to anyone who's interested in entrepreneurship, travel, and getting outside the 9-5 box.
This is an excellent podcast hosted by a very knowledgeable entrepreneur. Hugh Whalan is able to bring out of his guests truly unique insight on the ins, outs, ups and downs of starting businesses in the developing world - probably because of his own experience founding and operating businesses in emerging markets. Great listen!
