Podcast Show Notes
Entrepreneurs, startups, and small businesses can find it challenging to get their idea up and running for a variety of reasons. There may be business skills you need to learn, or perhaps an angel investor is required to bring your product or service from idea to reality. Perhaps you are unsure of what to put into your pitch, or maybe you need a great mentor that has the experience and expert knowledge that a young entrepreneur may yet lack.
To wrap up season one of the Supportedly Podcast, we reflect on some of the best advice that our guests have shared in the last 40 episodes. We discuss everything from networking, hiring applicants, creating and delivering pitches, growing your skills, finding a mentor, and so much more.
“It’s such a necessity to get out there and talk about what you’re doing. – Brandon Hall
This week on the Supportedly Podcast:
- Why you should go out of your way to build relationships with other entrepreneurs.

- Why you shouldn’t overrun your pitch time and why you should finish with an ask.

- Pursuing new things to develop and grow your skills.
