Founders who are still in the process

Great to hear the stories and advise from people who are still in the process of building and making it big. Most podcasts give you the view of someone who had already made it which is a completely different perspective (often not entirely true as they tend to only focus on the big highlights instead of the day to day reality they had to go through) whereas this show actually digs into the reality of building start ups which gives a much more practical perspective and inspiration. Much needed in the startup community.
