Anyone that has ever started a business will tell you that it’s an emotional roller coaster. Invariably, you will ask yourself if you have what it takes to run a successful business and will question whether or not your product or service is viable. In this episode, Charles invited Adam Mutschler and Dr. Frank to have a candid conversation about starting a business, the importance of “curiosity” in entrepreneurship, the value of engaging coaches/mentors, and the grind that it takes to push through the challenges founders face.
Adam Mutschler is a Partner in The Kedar Group, a coaching firm that supports leaders in the private, nonprofit, and governmental sectors. He also hosts the podcast The Founders Mind that explores all of the dimensions of starting a business with startup founders and field experts. In the true entrepreneurial spirt, Adam recently launched a new podcast Socially Distanced that gives you an intimate, behind the scenes look at what we are facing in the midst of a global pandemic.
Dr. Frank Mirabal is the founder of Mad Scientist Media, a storytelling company that educates, uplifts, and inspires through the lived experiences of people.
