Business isn't really about numbers, it's about people. "Behind the Bottom Line" is inspired by the funny and interesting people I've met or the strange events I've experienced, and which I've turned into stories for different publishers.
In each season, I tell the tales of these people or events and also something about the real-life background. I hope you enjoy them and subscribe to my podcast.
