Podcast Discussion : How I Built This
The podcast for this month is my other favorite (next to Super Soul) which is How I Built This! I have listened to every single episode and have loved every single one .. of course some more than others but have taken something away from each one. The podcast is hosted by Guy Raz and I think he does a really good job with the interviews and getting them to share their story but also share helpful tips or parts of the story that could benefit other people. He has episodes with a bunch of different companies like Starbucks, Kate Spade, Instagram, and a lot more. My dad started a business when him and my mom were first married and that is the business he still runs! I remember him telling us a lot about his business and how he started it and I remember hearing all of these business terms from a young age because of him. We would often go to work with him and he would let me blast Spice Girls in the car and always took us to Dunkin Donuts on the way 🙂 I think my dad is the reason why my siblings and I all have an entrepreneurial spirit and why I love hearing stories of how other people started their businesses!
My favorite episodes have been Patagonia, Spanx, and Five Guys!! Those three are my top that I LOVVVED! Sarah Blakely who started Spanx is just so rad and I love her story. Patagonia I have already talked about on here but I just love how he runs his business and for me since we are still a new company and can really shape how we want our company to feel – I loved reading more about how they do it over there. And Five Guys is just so cool you guys have to listen to it! I love that he started it later in life after having several failed businesses and that he had his kids so involved. You’ll have to just listen to the whole thing 🙂
Okay so if you have listened I wanna hear your favorite episodes – who has been your fav or who did you think was boring?! And if you haven’t then you should go listen 😉
