The public’s perception of entrepreneurship is skewed. News stories on entrepreneurship often give inordinate focus to ‘buzzy’ businesses whose size and disruptive force threaten to upend whole industries. Every article about entrepreneurship seems obsessed with well-funded giants that wish to change the way everything is done. To experienced entrepreneur Jacob Baranski, it can often feel overwhelming.
Jacob Baranski believes that any thorough examination of modern entrepreneurship would show the field to be differentiated, creative, and well-meaning. How does Jacob know this? He listens to podcasts.
Seriously, podcasts. In no place is the complexity and diversity of entrepreneurship more evident than in the wide variety of podcasts focusing on them. Jacob Baranski has quite a few favorites, any of which would leave no doubts as to how entrepreneurship can be big, small, disruptive, traditional, and everything in between.
Entrepreneurship podcasts have taught Jacob Baranski that what really links entrepreneurs of all types is the drive to create something new. Entrepreneurs build businesses, make money (of course), and reach for their goals as ethically and responsibly as possible.
