There is a podcast that has been helping me a lot in the last 12 months.
It’s made by Startups.com‘s founders, two very serial entrepreneurs who started 14+ companies (yes, amazing) in their lives and talk about all the aspects you go through as a founder and CEO. The podcast name itself is amazing: https://www.startups.com/community/startup-therapy
There are great episodes that will clearly makes sense to you if you have started a company before, it doesn’t matter of which size, venture backed or bootstrapped. Will and Ryan, the two founders, do a fantastic job describing how you feel as a founder as they describe what happened to them in several companies. Most of the times you will find yourself saying “Fuck yes!”, as they clearly have been through a lot themselves and are able to explain what to do and not to do. Not just that, for a founder it is not easy to understand that what is happening to you, it’s normal and it’s common for other people in your role as well.
If you are building a company I highly suggest this podcast. Most of the things they talk about are really things nobody will understand if not other founders, and I know how difficult it is to find support and talk to someone who has been through this before.
I was driving home tonight and I just listened to “Bouncing back from failure” that is a fantastic one!
