Real business owners with real stories
This podcast is on my twice weekly listen list. Troy gets straight to the person behind the business, giving insight into where they have been and how they got to where they are now. The GASB podcast uncovers the plans and strategies that the business owners have deployed to achieve their goals.
Great variety of business people!
These are great and I really enjoy the variety of people, companies and the stories!
The reason for taking off one star is that Troy sometimes talks about himself in or two times too much in each interview and we could have more insight on the people he interviews! They have such amazing stories!
Great uncomplicated format.
Just found this recently having met Troy at one of his networking events. Love the simple format of these podcasts. Easy to jump into (and out of when you’re pulled away mid-cast, knowing where you’re up to when you go back). Good international talent with unique backgrounds. Fresh. Insightful. Helpful.
