Awesome podcast

Love the amazing insights, super practical and inspirational!

Great resource

The topics on this program are wide, raging and very interesting, especially for entrepreneurs. While I am retired and not really doing anything entrepreneurial, I just listened to the interview of Melissa Schilling, and it was so much fun. I would highly recommend it. The dialogue provides plenty of meat for everyone, including parents, who want to encourage their children to feel free to be innovative and adventuresome.
