Brought to you by AND The Podglomerate podcast network, this is the show where we learn from entrepreneurs who understand focus and scale. They’ve started off as solo practitioners — developers, designers, product marketers, or creatives — and found out how to grow something to be bigger than themselves. What makes them unique is that in many cases they started these pursuits as freelance gigs… that ultimately took on a whole new life and scaled far beyond the founders’ expectations and definitely bigger than themselves.

You get to hear the details of what they did, how they did it, and what decisions were the hardest to make along the way.
