Honest and inspiring 🙌

This is one of the only podcasts I know of that actually dives into the energetics, interpersonal dynamics and pyschological sparring that naturally occurs when building a business. The work of being an entrepreneur doesn't just impact the person leading/growing/starting the business, and listening to Sherry and Rob talk candidly with their guests (and each other) about the subtle forces that truly make or break success, as a human being first, is refreshing - and inspiring!!

Refreshingly honest conversations about the 'Founder Life'

Truly appreciate this podcast for all the real conversations Sherry and Rob have with each other and their guests. And even more so because they cover topics typically skipped over or avoided alltogether in startup/founder discussions (ex. the impact of entrepreneurship on families, maintaining a sex life, and mental health and suicide).

Extremely helpful...

Being a successful founder isn't all about the best marketing & product strategies. There is so much to keep in check outside our businesses that have to do with healthy relationships and a proper mental state. This podcast has both useful founder husband/wife discussions (hosts Rob & Sherry) as well as some great founder interviews. If you run any type of business, this is much too important to ignore.

Don't miss Sherry's book "The Entrepreneur’s Guide to Keeping Your Sh*t Together" either.
