Connecting with other entrepreneurs is a great way to grow your network and learn from people who truly understand the ups and downs of entrepreneurship. 

In this episode, Ben and Deb talk with their podcast manager, Virginia Elder, about what led her to launch her own media company after working in the finance industry for several years. They also include some helpful tips for listeners interested in starting their own podcast.     

In this episode, you’ll also hear:

  • Understanding what your audience is asking for 
  • Creating a new job for yourself vs. creating a business 
  • Top recommendations for podcast tools 

Must-listen moments: 

[00:15:58] When you look at it from an entrepreneur lens…that was a pivot that I didn't know that I was doing. And just kind of listening to what the audience is asking for, and it's just very unintentional, but it was a great opportunity and it's not stopped.

[00:22:39] One of the biggest challenges has definitely been the mindset and belief in yourself that is required to be an entrepreneur because there's definitely times where you feel like nobody believes in you.

[00:25:45] With entrepreneurship, it can very easily consume your life and be that way for a very long time, unless you're very strategic about delegating, getting that team in place, getting systems in place.
