A show for entrepreneurs, for anyone who wants to know about business, or how to have a life while having a business. Founders Alli Webb and Michael Landau speak to budding and successful business owners whose ideas they love. Alli started their business Drybar by driving herself around to homes in Los Angeles to give blow-outs to clients, but then their business took off. Now, Drybar has over a hundred stores across the country. Alli and Michael share what it takes to risk everything on a great idea, they share the things they’re obsessed with -- and they fight like brother and sister. Oh, did we forget to mention that Alli and Michael are also siblings?

So good! Thank you Alli and Michael- this podcast is so helpful for entrepreneurs!
Great podcast! Keep it up.
I really wanted to love this.
I wanted to love this podcast after hearing about it on the Second Life podcast, but I sometimes find it hard to listen to. Ali and Michael interview some great people (I actually most loved the interview with their dad) but I get so frustrated when they continuously interrupt the guest! It also feels like they are competing with each other for air time. I want to hear less from them and more from their guests.
