A fresh focused look at startups!
I'm excited to be one of the first listeners to this podcast. Rommel offers fresh interviews with some interesting entrepreneurs (who also have interesting businesses.)
I find that many podcasts seem to focus on big businesses and huge successes. Let's be honest, the small startup is where it's at right now and this is exactly what Rommel is tackling. The show structure keeps it interesting, and it's always great to hear what young entrepreneurs are using on the daily to help keep their businesses going.
Looking forward to the rest of your first 30!
Great intro and your mic sounds really nice. Liked the show flow too. Listened to the first 2 shows. Looking forward to the next one.
Keep up the good word!
Thanks Rommel, I like what I am hearing! Some encouraging business ideas to get me started in my latest business venture!
