Welcome to Entrepreneurs IRL - a podcast that dives into the roller coaster ride of entrepreneurship by sharing the incredible stories of fellow entrepreneurs that are making their way through the messy middle.
I’m your host, Elizabeth Miner, author, business coach, location independent business woman, AND founder of Thrive This Day. My previous career as a corporate paralegal provided me the opportunity to work with businesses from solopreneurs to iconic companies. Over the last 15 years I have focused on coaching people around the globe to help them bring their business dreams to reality. I’ve met entrepreneurs just like you, from all over the world and I've come to realize although our businesses are unique, we all travel a similar rocky road.
Each week join me in intimate conversations with real-life entrepreneurs as they share their stories about the ups, downs, obstacles and triumphs of building a business you care about. It’s my hope that you’ll see a bit of yourself in these stories and you’ll be encouraged to know you are not alone and inspired to hear how others are moving through the journey. This is not the billionaire glossy version of their past, these are the stories of the perseverance, resilience, fear, and courage needed as an entrepreneur. This is our story, this is Entrepreneurs In Real Life.

I love this podcast. I’ve always wanted to have my own business one day and this podcast is REAL and talks about it all. I recommend it, 10/10!!!
Much needed perspectives!
This show zigs when everyone else zags. Love that the host focuses on the journey, the struggles, and the “messy middle” as opposed to only the shiny, flashy, overnight successes. This show gives lots of practical advice for people thinking about starting their own business!
