Great business podcast
If you are interested in consumer product entrepreneurship, this is a great podcast with successful brand builders.
I listened to Sheryl O’loughlin’s interview at a time when I was making a challenging business decision. Her honesty and candor struck a chord and helped me just push through. It’s great to hear the messiness behind great brands being built.
Listening to Unfinished Biz is like having a conversation with an old friend and swapping war stories. It’s an industry insider and reminds us we are all in this together.
