Stuff you can actually use!
Sure, this podcast gets you thinking. The real value is that most, if not all, of it is stuff entrepreneurs can actually use! I recently started a company. Most anyone having done it before can probably very accurately tell me my successes and failures without ever talking with me or looking at my books. These episodes go the step further by providing concrete, tangible examples. Our HQ is an hour from my house. My only issue with this podcast is that I run out of episodes long before I run out of time! I can't get enough of these lessons! Thank you Dave and guests!
