    Today's Founders Shares podcast episode presents a unique perspective that I'm sure will resonate with many of you. We typically delve into the stories of seasoned entrepreneurs and their businesses. However, this time, we're flipping the script.

We're exploring the nascent stages of entrepreneurship, and it's a privilege for me to introduce our special guest – my own daughter, Tierney Schmidt.

Impact-FULL-podcast

Founder Shares, Thanks for interviewing Kristen Hopkins! Her content on Social and Emotional Learning WILL paradigm shift the world. I know it! Thanks too to Earfluence for producing the podcast.

Kristen may have heard water trickle from the apartment above as the second hint from God but thankfully she listened. The download she received and shares in all her ventures unlocks the restrictive mindsets which have bound generations. We all need to impliment the wisdom she uncovered; I'm excited to read Dangers of the Mind.

Matt Miner, Work Pants Finance ,

Trevor Schmidt and Bob Freedman serve up the gold

Enjoyed the discussion with Bob, particularly his plan to pursue entrepreneurship knowing he could return to a job if he had to - but planning to avoid that result if at all possible! Trevor’s conversational style as host is easy on the audience. I look forward to more episodes! Matt Miner
