Have you ever had an idea for a new product but just didn't know how to get started? If so, then this is the podcast for you! Each week, we highlight a different product entrepreneur who turned a great new idea into a successful new product. You'll hear about their challenges, their triumphs, their ups, and their downs. But, most of all, you'll learn how each guest was able to take nothing more than an idea, and turn it into a viable, marketable product or business. Our guests have been featured on Shark Tank, The Profit, Today's Next Big Thing, QVC, Kickstarter, Indiegogo, and more! Tune in each week to learn how you can move beyond your product idea and toward Making It Real!

Useful tips and quite inspirational!
Each episode provides tips and tools that are useful not only to other entrepreneurs but also to business managers in general.
As an entrepreneur it is encouraging to know that though there are hard times ahead, passion and hard work will move you and your business closer to your goal
I also love the interaction between Tate and Bob throughout !
Thank you for a great podcast!
I was fotunate enough to be a guest on Making It Real (E023 - Knox Box).
The total experience - listening to many episodes in advance, recording ours, then getting real feedback from our customers and business community - has been fantastic.
Bob, Tate and the rest of their team are delivering a great value to all the current, future and possible entrepreneurs out there.
This is a great podcast to learn about being a business owner, bringing a new product to market, and even being a better employee. I learned a lot and the hosts are great. Nice job!
