Inspired, Smart, and Honest

A business podcast with unassuming hosts. Freshman Founders provides a roadmap for how to start and run your own business, (speedbumps and wrong-turns included). I appreciate that the topics are digestible and relevant, and that the hosts are so honest with their own experiences.
