How do you navigate the 21st-century economy without sacrificing your values, health, or relationships?

The What Works podcast explores work and culture as it’s lived by today’s creative workforce. Whether you’re a small business owner, an independent worker, or part of a team, this podcast is for you. Each episode explores a question—sometimes logistical, sometimes philosophical—to better understand what works in today’s economy.

This is one of the most well-researched and thought-provoking entrepreneurship podcasts I've ever listened to. You can tell how much research and thought goes into each episode. Each time I listen I come away with new ideas and questioning (in a good way!) what it means to be a business owner in the online space. — 5-Star Review
