We began this journey as relative outsiders in both Podcasting & Startups. We needed to forge lasting relationships with people who’s knowledge & wisdom was greater than our own to have any chance at success.
Advisors are paramount to all startups, even more so if they are bootstrapped & self-funded like us. The skills, ideas, & strategy our advisors provide is critical, yes, but only useful if we listen & put their advice into practice. We are excited to introduce you to the SquadCast Advisory Board!
