It’s a fun show. Love the tech/startup/entrepreneur/ don’t be afraid to fail vibe. Really inspiring guests and host. Talking too loud Chris and producer Sylvie have great chemistry.
Must listen for tech and business enthusiasts
A true must-listen for entrepreneurs, tech enthusiasts, or aspiring business owners. Chris and Sylvie go past surface level (aka BORING) business best practices and dive deep into how to build a great brand. The show highlights less flashy leaders in tech and each interview is always chock-full of takeaways. An easy listen that I always look forward to!
I love listening to TTL in the car. Chris and Sylvie have a very sweet, funny rapport, and their guests bring unique, unexpected insights into how they manage through change, struggle, and upheaval. It’s a refreshingly rare and human take on managing people and a business. Highly recommended.
