Determining the purpose of your business is a huge key to building a successful venture. It can't just be about the money.

Making money is not a strong enough motivator to get you through all of the challenges of starting your own company.

In this podcast, we share stories and insights into why entrepreneurs inspires people to build the business of their dreams.
