Love Drew Kerr’s Episode

So interesting! Learned a lot!

Tony Cliffe ,

Unleashed is a Gold Mine!

Will Bachman’s Unleashed podcast lives up to its description as the place to go to thrive as an independent professional. From very short episodes on indispensable tools and tricks of the trade to more in-depth interviews with consulting practitioners to academics to industry thought leaders, the nearly 400 (and counting) episodes each bring value to the listener. Very highly recommended.

JonBai ,

Highly useful, relevant information

I recently discovered this show after hearing the host (Will Bachman) speak on another podcast and was happy to find that each episode is full of useful and practical ideas that can be easily applied. Geared towards helping independent professionals thrive, Will mixes up longer form interviews with some intriguing guests and solo episodes that are short and straight to the point. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a masterclass on what it takes to build a successful independent business.
