The Struggling Entrepreneur is a free podcast series that deals with the issues, challenges and problems of the individual who wants to be an entrepreneur, but who encounters a somewhat difficult path and appears to be struggling. However, this podcast series also addresses the opportunities that await an inspiring and dedicated individual who wants to be an entrepreneur, along with recommended resources. This podcast series will consist of both interviews of individuals who both struggled due to obstacles, but overcame them to become successful entrepreneurs. The stories from these individuals serve as lessons learned, templates for ?best practices? and models for the upcoming entrepreneur. In addition, resource lists will be provided each month for additional information to point the entrepreneur where more assistance and help can possibly be found.
