The Entrepreneur Hot Seat is a podcast for entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs to hear stories from other entrepreneurs, the different types of businesses out there and the challenges other entrepreneurs are facing and what they are doing to overcome those challenges. In each episode, I will interview a different entrepreneur (some very successful, some just starting out) to learn about their business, their vision and goals as well as what they are struggling with and try to pull some lessons from the conversation.
