Description

Welcome to 'How I Built My Small Business,' where we dive deep into conversations with guests who've carved out their own path to success. But, we're not only about the creation of businesses. Alongside entrepreneurs, I also chat with experts offering perspectives that'll benefit anyone striving to lead, learn, or improve.

This is a creative outlet and a way to share knowledge from incredible people.

My guests share the raw, heartwarming details of their experiences with one goal in mind: to provide real insight that'll help others.

By listening to these interviews and stories, my hope is that you find even one little takeaway that sparks or inspires your path.

While most of my guests rake in $1 million to $20 million net profit a year, some make more and some make less, but there is a lesson worth learning in each one. I also bring in special guests from brokering and mergers, mindset and meditation, entertainment and marketing, among others. So, the line-up is diverse in niche, experience and perspective - and so, so fun.

But, here's the kicker - every single one of my guests has started their own business at some point in their journey.

Thank you for listening.
