Podcast Show Notes
On the Supportedly podcast, I always need to cut material from interviews that I wish I could include in the podcast. This material is often packed with valuable insight, tips, and funny stories from inspiring entrepreneurs – like you – but needed to be cut for time.
On this bonus episode, I want to share some of the highlights of the previous discussions I had with some of the inspiring entrepreneurs I have featured on the show, such as No Evil Foods Co-Founder Sadrah Schadal, Patchd Medical CEO Robert Quinn, Foothills Digest Editor-In-Chief Carmen Eckard, and Toybrary of Asheville’s Chief Play Officer Susan Dobroski. Some of these conversations were funny, some were informative – but all were inspiring and well-worth sharing. I am happy for you to hear this episode and know you’ll enjoy listening to it as much as I did putting it together!

- What led Sadrah Schadel to start No Evil Foods.

Disclaimer: During his 60-second pitch for Patchd Medical, Robert stated “you can entirely prevent sepsis.” Sepsis is a potentially fatal condition caused by the body’s response to an infection. Robert recently requested we clarify his pitch statement, explaining that he meant to state “in theory, one should be able to entirely prevent sepsis.”
