Finding it helpful as a new business owner

Just started my own business in 2021, and found this podcast to be short, informative, and thought provoking.

The recent episode with Rob Shallenberger has given me some good ideas on how to be less distracted and more productive in my business.

Michael Stetina ,

Love the Varied Perspectives!

I found Enterprise Podcast Network through a client and I'm hooked! I love how the topics diverge from the usual entrepreneur centric subjects.
