I’m a middle of the road entrepreneur. I’ve had some successes, and messed up almost as often. What really drives me is trying to find out how I can do this better. In each episode of the 10th Degree I'll dive in to a particular topic with someone who knows the subject inside out, to find out the practical steps anyone starting out or scaling a business should do to get on. Our guests are not house hold names, and I won’t be focusing on their back story. This is not about abstract concepts or personal achievements. It’s about discovering exactly what you should do, right now to improve your business.

Another great Podcast, this time featuring South West UK digital peeps

I could have told Andy Walker he’d not make it as a footballer the minute he could walk. Grudgingly, he does talk some sense. High quality audio. Great people. Worth a listen - just pick your topic. No need to start with the first. In fact, just start with the second. ;)
