Breath of Fresh Air

I recently had the pleasure to join Nate on his podcast so of course I listened to all of his episodes leading up to our conversation. What impressed me the most was the diverse thinking and background of every single one of his guests. Hearing both the risks and rewards through the lens of various founders was incredibly insightful and highly recommended for anyone looking to self-fund a startup in the logistics industry.
