A new part of the ETA podcast canon
I recently found out about Acquiring Minds after being invited to the show. Prior to knowing about Acquiring Minds, I listened religiously to other entrepreneurship through acquisition podcasts - Think Like an Owner, Acquisitions Anonymous, etc. Although now I’m operating an actual business I acquired, I’m still listening to Will’s show. Even for interviewees who’ve been on other shows I’ve listened to, hearing those interviewees on Acquiring Minds is still really useful just because each interviewer extracts different information from the interviewee… and Will’s a great interviewer!
An interesting, great listen!
I had never thought much of acquiring a business, and this podcast has opened a whole new world for me. Love the diversity of the guests and listening to their interesting stories. Will does an excellent job with the interviews and making sure practical information gets shared too.
Learning a ton from the stories
So far the interviews have been great - educational and inspirational for someone like me who is considering buying a business. Look forward to more!
