Whose story is it podcast



Welcome to the “Whose Story is it?” Podcast

Learn from business owners’ stories.


The podcast is where extraordinary lessons are hidden within everyday stories. It is intimate and conversational, fostering a connection with the guest by the end of each episode.  Join us in revealing the untold stories within a business leader’s success. Enjoy as we uncover the extraordinary… in the ordinary.

The podcast was created for curious business owners who learn from other business owners’ experiences (mistakes!). You will learn from other business owners who have succeeded but not without their own mistakes. But the twist is you will learn about “who” they are as much as what they did. And you will learn all of this without knowing their name or background. Guest identities will be unveiled after each story in the last few minutes of the podcast.
