It's been close to two years since I have last shared my story and our audience has grown close to 300% since that release. For that reason, I thought it was time to replay how the show came to be, and why I'm so passionate about bringing transparency and authenticity to the entrepreneurial journey. This episode is MY Startup Story.
In the past month or so, I’ve had a few newer listeners reach out to me asking me when I would share a bit more about my story and how I got to the point of bringing The Startup Story to market. Well, as I responded to each of those listeners, I realized that it has been almost two years since my startup story episode has been released. What I also realized is that, when we did release that episode we were sitting at around 30,000 listeners…well we are now close to 100,000 listeners so it seems like it might be advantageous to replay my story for our newer, and much larger audience.
This is also the only episode of the show where I am not the host. I could not tell my Startup Story without having my wife be part of the telling because so much of what I’ve been through has also been part of her story; and that is just the reality of marriage. There is no compartmentalizing things when you are married. As an entrepreneur, your startup plays an enormous role in your marriage…and that is why I had to have her join the show to ask me the questions that I probably wouldn’t naturally share had she not asked me.
This episode is incredibly raw!
