Sinopsis

For every episode I read a biography of an entrepreneur and pull out ideas you can use in your work. Here is how one listener described the podcast: "Finally a podcast that doesn't take itself too seriously while delivering something seriously valuable. David takes an unpretentious approach to sharing lessons from the lives of larger-than-life entrepreneurs. It can be best described as a one-person book club without ads, intro music, or a production crew. Founders is, pound for pound, probably the most insightful media out there."
