Fresh, first-hand and relevant
I don’t have time for podcasts. Most are simply not that engaging. Gresham’s work, however, is another story. I actually MAKE time for this podcast. There is nothing more useful and inspiring to someone in business than hearing first hand how someone made it work. Or failed. Or made it work after failing. Gresham has tremendous insight into not only the topics at hand but the people on the program. He’s warm and accessible, funny and intelligent. It’s great content! After thirty years in business, I love it that I can still be knocked out by another professional’s journey.
