Pablo asks great questions and draws out good stories
Being a business owner myself this was super refresh to listen to. Other business stories similar and crazier than mine are told on every episode. Awesome show, definitely worth listening to!
Expertly produced and highly engaging.
This podcast is expertly produced with engaging content. Highly recommended if you are an entrepreneur, work in a small business or are thinking of starting a business.
Solid and honest
A great way to learn from the real deal business creators. I like how the interviews really give me a sense of who is behind these businesses.
