Dr. Lindsay Padilla and Dr. Derek Padilla explore the teaching and business lives of their guests as well as their own backgrounds. And how these two identities shape one another. Each interview traces the story behind their choices, the challenges they faced, and the mindset it takes to start a business (whether on the side or to leave teaching for good). If you've ever felt bound by the walls of your institution, then you'll want to listen to these stories of your fellow teaching misfits who are using their knowledge to build profitable businesses.

Dr Feilgood ,

Dr Lindsay Padilla is masterful

I have literally left every episode with at least one to two golden nuggets of inspiration and business acumen which is super important for Academicians who were never taught business!

Dr. Michelle M ,

Amazingly useful information!

I wish this podcast existed when I was making the transition from academic to business owners. Incredibly insightful for any academic consider making the leap to the "real world."

EngNorman ,

Highly useful content

Lindsay really does an important service in helping scholars think beyond academia. Love that many different kinds of scholar-entrepreneurs are featured. Hope to hear more!
