When entrepreneurs start a new company they embark on a journey. Most of the time they set out on this journey without a clear idea of what to expect or even of what the final destination is, but isn't that part of the fun!
This series was born out of listening to many entrepreneurs talk about how there is so many resources on how to build a company, but a void when it comes to the personal journey entrepreneurs take and what can be learned from it. This series fills that void. My hope is that you will learn from entrepreneurs on a personal level, to learn from their failures, successes, and their insights.
It is my honor and pleasure to present this series to you, please enjoy!
