A goldmine of info for the solopreneur

Steve gets top notch thought leaders and practitioners on his podcast. He also provides transcripts so you don't have to scribble down the key take away point or hope to remember later what that awesome quote was. If you are in professional services, consulting, or sales, this is for you. BTW...if you have any doubts, listen to the interview with Same Side Selling author Ian Altman and be prepared to be amazed.
