Have you ever listened to a podcast? If you have, you know that there’s not one word to truly describe them. Podcasts can be funny, entertaining and sweet, but they can also be informative, heartbreaking or even awe-inspiring
Another wonderful thing about podcasts is that they’re easy to listen to while you’re doing something else. I often turn one on while I am working on something, making reports or anything, but you can also listen to them while you’re cleaning or browsing Pinterest in bed.
Each one of these podcasts has undoubtedly shifted or pushed my thinking toward a greater intuitive sense of how to launch and run a business. They have helped me develop a greater intuitive sense of what an organization, business, startup, team, or founder looks like when it’s working when it’s not, and how to get from point A to B in launching an idea. Still — nothing beats experience, and as much as these podcasts have helped me piece together and make sense of what startup work I have done thus far, the highest level of understanding must be attained through creating and doing.
