Wow! 10/10 would recommend this podcast. The TryingIsBeing crew provides GREAT insight into the daily struggles that most entrepreneurs face. I’m pretty new to the TryingIsBeing community but I’ve already binged 1/2 of their episodes. As a newbie to business these guys have taught me about a range of subjects including the value of SEO, productivity, and creating a personal brand. I would like to give the whole TryingIsBeing crew a huge thank you for creating such a supportive community and for producing A+ content for free. You guys are killing it. Keep it up! 🙌
