Great insights on this podcast!
David is a highly creative dude who always seems to find key wisdom and takeaways from his guests. I listen to this show to get inspired and keep my mind sharp.
All about the process
I was recommended this podcast by Jason Zook and I'm so glad I subscribed. Love hearing David talk about the process and early stages of creating/running a business. My favorite are the solo episodes.
As a business owner of a startup over the last five years, I am finding The First Four Years very inspiring and helpful. I am continuing to take advice from the podcast and I just started listening. It is very refreshing to hear other from other people who are in similar situations and feels very nice! Keep it up!
