Life beyond work feel disconnected? Press pause & listen in. This is a show for entrepreneurs, with nothing about entrepreneurship.

In each episode, a founder takes a break with us to reconnect with personal stuff that matters to them. Instead of talking about work, we talk about their roots & experiences, and how they shaped their thoughts, emotions, and outlook.

Grab a seat and kickback, as we reconnect with parts of our identity that got left in the dark, and rediscover the foundation of who we are.

She works with professionals of color, primarily Black women, to help them get “unstuck” in life and chart a path towards attaining a life of meaning, value, and purpose. We talk about the science behind why unfamiliar situations create fear, and for people who take more risks with unfamiliar situations, what's different about their psychology.

Remarkable podcast

Jeff is as inquisitive as he is genuine, and thoughtful, kind and sensitive. I really appreciate his passion for exploring deep subjects and showing a side of humans and entrepreneurs that they never get to see. Coming from a family of entrepreneurs and teachers, it was amazing to show the backstory that led to the leader in the room, to see a whole human being. These conversations are so important to families, communities and the world. Thank you, Jeff for your heartfelt passion and generosity in creating this “marketplace” of the human side of entrepreneurship!

A heart-centered podcast

I love this podcast and wish I had thought of the idea first! This is a podcast featuring guests who are leaders in their fields… but the conversations have nothing to do their “accomplishments.” Jeff is an incredible host and asks the best questions that take his guests down a level of introspection that we as the listeners have the honor and privilege of listening in on. We need more of these types of conversations!
