A show for entrepreneurs, for anyone who wants to know about business, or how to have a life while having a business.
Founders Alli Webb and Michael Landau speak to budding and successful business owners whose ideas they love. Alli started their business Drybar by driving herself around to homes in Los Angeles to give blow-outs to clients, but then their business took off. Now, Drybar has over a hundred stores across the country. Alli and Michael share what it takes to risk everything on a great idea, they share the things they’re obsessed with -- and they fight like brother and sister. Oh, did we forget to mention that Alli and Michael are also siblings?

Good but...

I am a non-entrepreneur who loves entrepreneur podcasts so it’s hard not to notice the areas of weakness in this podcast compared to others. A few suggestions- please try to do a little more research on your guests before the podcast starts if you’re not already great friends with them! You should not be learning about their company at the same time as your listeners. Also, please stop telling your guests how to grow their company. You obviously have a very successful model but it’s uncomfortable to listen to your guests politely tell you that your way is not for them. Finally- I was really turned off in your Afterpay episode. You just could not wrap your head around using a service like that. Please recognize your privilege a little bit better! Overall I like listening but there’s room for improvements!

I had to stop listening- Alli is so rude!! She says to her guest- “I’m trying to figure out why this company is even a company”. I have heard her put down other people’s businesses over and over. She seems shocked that people would use day planners, fancy ice, or afterpay. Are you inviting people on this podcast just to float your ego and brag about your own success in business?

Piece of Humble Pie for 1

I was so excited to listen to the Sugar Paper girls talk, as they don’t do a ton of interviews, but could not get over how dismissive and rude Alli was to them. Knowing names and doing research on their product should be standard fare for any podcast host. Alli acting like she couldn’t believe people pay top dollar for their paper was so cringeworthy...and maybe they don’t want to grow into a behemoth, and that is OK. Have the social grace to at least try and understand what people are selling before trying to interview them.
