As we hear The Startup Story of some of the most successful companies in the world our focus is singular…
To give you the belief and courage to Start Your Story.
Every successful startup began with a single decision. It’s not about the dream, it’s not about the vision, it’s about having the courage to take that very first step -- to start.
How did UBER grow to $50 billion? How did Spanx become massively successful without one dime of venture capital? The stories are out there. But The Startup Story goes even deeper. What exactly did they do to go from idea to launch? What was that first step and how did they decide to take it?
Each week, hear from the courageous founders behind some of the most successful brands in the world as they share their Startup Story. We’ll unpack the early beginnings, and uncover those first steps that ultimately led them to where they are today.
Whether you’re an entrepreneur who’s in the thick of it and not making much progress, or feeling stuck in the fear of failure, not sure if you have what it takes, this podcast was created for you.

Worth the Listen

This is my new favorite podcast! James does an incredible job interviewing and crafting the stories of entrepreneurs. These stories draw you in and give great insights on living out your dreams. It is both practical and humbling to hear the good, bad and ugly situations that real life entrepreneurs face in getting their businesses off the ground. My favorite part of the show is James’ deep belly laugh as the story unfolds. Keep up the good work!

My new fav podcast

This is one podcast you feel like you have to binge on. Is binging podcast a thing? It seems to fit for me. Very well done James! Viewgol is our startup and we will use your topics weekly in our founders meeting to take this free education and inside secrets from other founders. It’s like we can get mentorships from some greats through a lens of being a founder. Tim Ferris has concepts of learning from a collection of greats. This is a whole different level for us as founders. Wow!

Fantastic interview with Chris Brownridge

I really enjoyed your conversation with Chris. The conversation felt so open and genuine to a degree that’s very rare to hear on any podcast, let alone one about entrepreneurship.
