Have you ever looked at a company or product and thought, “How did they come up with that idea?” Or are you just interested in how entrepreneurs get started? If so, then the How I Built This podcast is for you. The host, Guy Raz, interviews people who started companies. Many are household names, from Herb Kelleher, the founder of Southwest Airlines, to Howard Schultz of Starbucks and even Kendra Scott of Kendra Scott Jewelry.
It’s so fascinating to listen to the founders explain what all they overcame to get their companies to the well-known status we know today. They discuss not only their triumphs but their failures too. What’s great about this podcast is that in almost every situation these founders were just normal people. Many of them started their companies at a young age, but that never stopped them. I love learning about how they took an idea and made it into a successful business. If you are an entrepreneur or just like learning from entrepreneurs, How I Built This is for you!!
