I love the episodes that are out so far. The passion, knowledge, and insights the guests bring to the table are incredible.
Really interesting and inspiring
The small business side of entrepreneurism is so overlooked. I'm not a small business owner myself, but I find the lessons and experiences of the entrepreneurs interviewed so far (Terry Jacques and Charles Fisher) to be applicable to my everyday life. Even more than the experiences of the sexier solopreneurs or startup entrepreneurs. Totally love this podcast. Very engaging and inspiring.
Really great insight.
