Welcome to Inter:Views.
My name is Laurent Notin, I am a Coach to Entrepreneurs and Start-up Mentor.
Entrepreneurs get easily buried under work, without being able to breathe because they have so many things to do and learn.
That’s why I created this podcast - to help entrepreneurs and wannabe entrepreneurs better navigate their entrepreneurship journey.
I thought the best way to do that was to chat with business owners and professionals who work with entrepreneurs across the globe and industries.
Every week, I ask them to provide their perspectives on entrepreneurship and share the lessons and practical insights they’ve learned along the way.
My goal? Crack the entrepreneurship code and understand how do to do it the right way.
