The blokes are the business mentors I would never in a million years have access to, especially in the very immature start-up phase of business. They speak and explain business in a way that’s relatable, especially to the regular everyday Aussie. Give me the intellectual “bogan geek” any-day, who actually knows what they’re talking about. When the blokes speak, I listen. There’s a bloke for every business personality type. You’ll find yourself saying “I completely agree with what he’s saying!” after yet another snippet of quality business advice comes out of your speakers. After regular listening, a pattern will emerge with who you relate to the most. Trying to catch up on the previous episodes, the blokes go with me everywhere. In my car while driving, in the wee hours of the morning (5am starts anyone?), in my downtime, on flights, at home on client-filled weekends... everywhere. The BBB podcast is the icing on my “live and breathe your business” cake. And I’m learning about beer. Highly recommended. - Lorryn_Inches_DG Download episode below but we'd prefer you to subscribe in iTunes, Stitcher, Soundcloud or this feed if you don't use iTunes.
