28 Of The Best Marketing Podcasts For Entrepreneur And Business Owners
Entrepreneurship can be a lonely game. Whether you’re founder of the next Deliveroo, a fat-busting fitness entrepreneur, or a Consultant with not enough hours in the day, you probably lay in bed at night with questions racing around your head.
- Will my marketing master plan work?
- How can I get more clients
- Should I wear glasses to my Angel Investor meeting (to make me look smarter and increase my chances of getting investment)?
Sure, your gently snoring partner / flatmate / lover (delete as applicable) would help you if they could, but sometimes we need support from other entrepreneurs who have been through the same marketing dilemmas.
