The heart beat of purpose driven business’

There is such a spectrum of entrepreneurs and the type that the Gem club attracts and interviews are the ones that started their business with a purpose beyond just making money. Adam and D compliment each other well as they both peel back the layers of what it takes to start a purpose driven business. One of my favorite pods to listen to on my way to work. Their questions at the end have also expanded my music horizons.
