This is a must listen podcast!
What I love about this podcast is the host, Paul Spiegelman, goes deeper with the guests. During his interviews, Paul's curiousity and common business sense helps me understand WHO this successful person really is. Paul asks about the guest's expereinces growing up, what experiences shaped them, and how they have been able to use those experiences to help become better leaders, successuful business people, and making a difference in their communities. The Small Giants Community, which Paul founded, is an inspirational group of business leaders that truly care about the totality of their employees lives, deep connections with customers, and making a difference in their communities. This podcast and the guests have been an inspiration to me as an entrepreneur - and has become a practical source for many of the ideas I've been able to incorporate into my leadership and company.
The Real Deal
Yes it's true that I was a guest. But I love this podcast because Paul is the "real deal." He has lived this life and brings truly great questions to the table of a wide variety of guests. I highly HIGHLY reccomend this podcast.
Genuine, heartfelt, meaningful
This show soothes the soul AND provides legitimate heartfelt and real business wisdom and advice. Paul is one of the best interviewers I've ever witnessed or experienced with each one of his guests bringing their heart to his table. Real, meaningful, educational, and warm - I am grateful for this show. Thanks Paul!
