If MBA school were this fun then it might have been worth its ridiculous price tag... actually no, MBA school was definitely a waste of time.
But this podcast isn't.
Hosts James and Dean weave a podcast that is laced with fun, entertainment, humor, AND solid entrepreneurial principles.
Just The Tips is worth it. It leaves you satisfied and not wishing you could get those 30 minutes back.
And, I haven't verified this yet, but host James says that Just The Tips "is arguably the best podcast in the entire world." So you can't go wrong.
Creator of Fiercely Feminine

Super cool conversation that is great to listen to while in the office.
Instead of listening to that playlist on spotify you don't care about that won't make you any money, just listen to these guys and pick up some cool, useful knowledge that will help your business. And don't forget to keep a notepad handy to jot down what you like most.
