Every week, I get multiple pitches from people who want to be guests on the podcast to share how successful they’ve been as entrepreneurs.
I delete most of them. The vast majority of them aren’t relevant to our audience — and there are plenty of other podcasts out there on entrepreneurship.
Yet, that doesn’t mean there aren’t tons of lessons for each of us to learn about what the top entrepreneurs are doing to influence great results. That’s why when I heard that past guest Dorie Clark has a new book called Entrepreneurial You*, I knew it was time for us to dive in.
Check out this week’s episode for many ideas worth stealing — and also Dorie’s 88-question Entrepreneurial You self-assessment.
