    #203: A recap of the interview mini-season

    #203: A recap of the interview mini-season

    I conclude the mini season of interviews with a brief summary of the five interviews I conducted. A few weeks ago, my cohost had a cycling that student that broke his jaw. As a result he had to take a break from the podcast while he was recovering. In the meantime, I invited a few people to come onto the podcast and talk about their businesses, their work and themselves.

Mental solace for bootstrappers

It looks like it’s been a while since Bootstrapped got a review on Apple Podcasts, so here goes…

This is a great show! The hosts are super approachable/interesting/modest, and open in discussing their successes and challenges in life as a bootstrapper.

I’ve picked up many a good tip and learned about interesting products, services, tricks and techniques of which I wasn’t previously aware. Regular guest slots keep the material nicely varied.

Listening to this will broaden your horizons. And even better - you’ll know that when you hit bumps in the road, you’re not alone.
