Podcasts can be a valuable tool for entrepreneurs because through listening to other peopleâ€™s stories, you can get an inside view of how they run their businesses, form lasting relationships and keep the creativity flowing along the way.
I link to Being Boss often in my Week + Links roundups because they always seem to cover the topics that are on my mind. If youâ€™re new to Being Boss, it was founded by Emily Thompson & Kathleen Shannon and as they so eloquently say, â€œBeing Boss in work and life, is being in it. Itâ€™s being who we are, doing the work, breaking some rules, and even though we each have to do it on our own â€“ knowing weâ€™re in it together.â€ Amen.
People look for that business partner relationship, but really you should just look for friends. â€”Gala
Basically, Being Boss rules at keeping it real. Emily and Kathleen arenâ€™t afraid to dig in, ask the hard questions and get the real story behind the story which is why weâ€™re all listening â€” we want the inside scoop. At the same time, thereâ€™s a robust community of support to back you up in the Being Boss Clubhouse.
And thatâ€™s why I find this podcast so valuable and unique â€” when youâ€™re done listening, youâ€™re not on your own. I believe that having a community to support you is one of the most important parts of growing and evolving a business.
A lot of businesses form from friendships, but you can’t force it. â€”Shauna
Iâ€™ve been a fan of this podcast for ages so when they asked me, along with my BFF Gala Darling to join them for an episode, I sad YES! This interview is unique because it covers how Gala and I have managed both a friendship and business relationship at the same time and kept the â€œfriends firstâ€ mentality along the way.
I hope youâ€™ll check out all the Being Boss episodes here. I know youâ€™ll love them.
And, you can listen to my joint interview with Gala right here. Enjoy!
