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.

Must Listen for Founders & Entrepreneurs

I am the CEO and Co-Founder of Seat Insiders, an event ticket concierge agency serving individuals and companies. I love listening to the Startup Story and have been an avid listener since the early days. James has a passion for telling stories that matter, and each story is inspiring and motivational. If you are an entrepreneur or want to become one, you need to listen to these stories.

I would like to just say Thank You. I lost my business after I purchased my 5th Convenience store, I purchased the store because a Mentor that I had a great amount of respect for convinced me it was a great deal. I did not follow my gut instinct to pass it by. Long story short, as an entrepreneur listen to advice but don’t make snap decisions and do your research and FOLLOW YOUR GUT FEELING.
I have enjoyed every episode of this podcast and have learned so much. You have lifted me up from a long dark depression and have restarted my brain and thinking like an entrepreneur again. By listening to your podcast I have been inspired to start looking for my next startup.
THANK YOU
Mike
