Hello, my name is Cory, and I’m an entrepreneur.
There, I admitted I’m an addict. For those of us neck deep in it, entrepreneurship can really feel like an addiction – the independence, the problem solving, the late nights and early mornings, 80 hour weeks, the inevitable failures and pivots to victory. Science has proven that entrepreneurs’ brains are wired differently, but how and why?
Then there are the documentaries, feature films, and other podcasts focusing on the moonshot success stories like Facebook, Amazon, Apple, and Microsoft – but the hard truth is that most of us won’t come close to that type of success. So why do we do it?
And we always hear that small businesses are the backbone of America’s economy. But what do ‘they’ define as a small business? And why isn’t anybody talking to, with, or about the rest of us? What do real, everyday entrepreneurs do? Where did they come from? What is their story? What are their successes and failures? What problems do they face? What led them into entrepreneurship? What preluded it? What effects has it had on their lives? And what are they planning next?
These are all things we explore in a new podcast called Entrepreneurs Anonymous.
