    Eventbrite: Julia Hartz

    In the early 2000s, Julia Hartz was helping develop TV shows for MTV and FX Networks, and seemed headed for a promising career in television. All of that changed in 2003 when she went to a wedding and found herself sitting next to a serial entrepreneur named Kevin. They started dating, and Julia eventually quit her job and joined Kevin in the Bay Area. In 2006 they married, and co-founded the online ticketing service Eventbrite out of a warehouse closet. 14 years after launch, Eventbrite is a publicly-traded company with 1,100 employees and offices around the world.

Today, Panera Bread has over 2,000 stores, and $5 billion in annual sales.

    M.M.LaFleur: Sarah LaFleur

    M.M.LaFleur: Sarah LaFleur

    When she was working corporate jobs in New York City, Sarah LaFleur hated getting dressed in the morning; the choices in her closet felt overwhelming, many items didn't fit right or wore out too quickly. So in 2011 she launched a line of clothing for working women that would be simple, elegant, and well-tailored. She had no experience in fashion but partnered with a top-line designer, Miyako Nakamura, to create M.M.LaFleur. Today it's a multi-million dollar company with loyal customers from Capitol Hill to Silicon Valley. PLUS in our post-script "How You Built That," Taylor Mali explains how he created Metaphor Dice, which ease the pain of writing the first line of a poem.

The bestest!

This is hands-down my favorite podcast!!! Love it, love it, love it! So many inspiring stories. We learn so much!
When people see a successful company or entrepreneur they usually don’t realize how hard it was for them to get to the point where they are at. I find it very interesting to listening to their struggles and I appreciate their willingness to share their businesses stories in such rich details.
