What is it that separates the entrepreneur from the rest of us? What is it that motivates a person to go down the hard road that is business? Are entrepreneurs born or made? Is it nature or nurture? Why did they say “No Thanks” the the metaphorical safe job at a bank to peruse something different?
Here, at Humans Of Business, we are about the people behind the business. We sit down with business people and talk to them about what makes them tick. We want to get to the heart of the guest. We sit down for an hour or so and simply chat. The first question we ask our guests is “where did you grow up?”. For me, that’s where it starts. Life experiences both positive and negative, influences, aspirations and limitations. We want to track our guests path from little kid to successful business owner. The long form interviews allow our guests to share stories from their life, their successes, their failures, challenges and triumphs. You the listener and reader, have access to the many years of experience and expertise our guests have to offer.
We speak with a wide and varied range of guests, from local sole traders to founders of multinational corporation, the one thing we all have in common? We’re all Human.
The Podcast is available from the usual podcast apps. Links will be in each blog post.
Each post on this site as well as our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages will be accompanied by photos of our guests taken by a multi-award winning professional photographer (who I am lucky enough to be married to!). This is to give you an even deeper sense of the person behind the story.
We love this project, I love speaking to these inspiring people, and my wife loves to take their portrait.
We hope you enjoy the guests, and get as much out of them as we did.
