Making It Presents Once Upon a Business

  • Episode #23

You listen to Making It because you want to learn from—and be inspired by!—successful entrepreneurs.

That’s why we thought you might be interested in a brand new show that just launched on the Mirasee FM Podcast Network. It’s called Once Upon a Business, and it’s hosted by our good friend and colleague Lisa Bloom, the Story Coach.

In Once Upon a Business, Lisa reaches into fairy, folk and traditional stories, and pulls out lessons that you can apply to your entrepreneurial and business growth.

To give you a taste of it, we’re running an episode from that show right here in the Making It feed. We chose this particular episode because it speaks so perfectly to entrepreneurial vision—to reaching just beyond what’s possible, to build something magical. Enjoy!

“I think it’s an incredibly important skill for an entrepreneur for anybody running a business to be able to know that creating something out of nothing is always possible.”
