Hey everybody, welcome back to another list of my 8 Top Podcasts on How Entrepreneurs Became Successful. I know how hard it is to be an entrepreneur and achieve success. I know when it feels like a long shot to achieve the success and freedom that you want. I also know what it takes to get there. I’ve been an entrepreneur that took an idea and built it into a success business. You need to develop a discipline and the skills for building a business – developing exciting vision and mission initiatives, building the teamwork, talent and systems necessary to realize those initiatives, and executing with a team to deliver the desired results.
I’ve listed 8 Top Podcasts on How Entrepreneurs Became Successful to help you achieve success. There are so many great lessons on persistence, discipline, tactics, and actions you can take from successful entrepreneurs. As a leader of a small team or large team, or even if you are just starting out as a solo entrepreneur with a great idea – these podcast episodes will help you get the courage and inspiration to take your idea, manifest it, and build it out to success. And if you share the episode on LinkedIn and your thoughts, please mention me, and I’ll be happy to respond to your post! I really enjoyed these conversations, and I think you will too!

Want to know about me, Mike Malatesta, the podcast host?
I’ve lived in entrepreneurial shoes like yours since I was 26. For 30 years I’ve been through – and am still on – the roller coaster you’re on. I’ve experienced the excitement, pain, grit, and mistakes that come with every entrepreneurial journey. You can learn about many of the problems I dealt with starting my companies, and how I overcame them in my book “Owner Shift – How Getting Selfish Got Me Unstuck” available on Amazon. Purchase my book Owner Shift, make notes along the way in the book, and reread all the stories that inspire you to become an entrepreneur. I want this book to inspire you on your entrepreneurial journey to get unstuck, and achieve the future you always imagined.
If you prefer to listen, get my audiobook, Owner Shift. Free with your trial on Audible or Amazon. You’ll get access to all my stories that lead me to become an entrepreneur. Most importantly, you’ll hear my journey to get unstuck, and achieve the future I always imagined. And you’ll hear it directly from me, I narrate the audiobook!
And if you want my professional help as your coach, contact me here. I’ve mastered what it takes to start, build, grow, and sell a business. When I work with clients through my OwnerShift coaching, I help entrepreneurs and business owners get unstuck and start living the life they want.
My purpose is to inspire and activate increasing greatness in entrepreneurs and leaders. My goal is to make a positive and profitable difference with every client I work with. I help clients apply the lessons I’ve been fortunate to learn in my 30 years as an entrepreneur to help them excel and create amazing lives, companies, teams, and futures.
I don’t do this work to make a living.
I do it to make a difference.
I’m very selective about my OwnerShift coaching relationships. I ONLY work with these kinds of clients:
- Entrepreneurs and CEOs of profitable, privately held companies leading companies with revenues between $10M and $250M.
- Leaders who are committed to moving beyond where they are professionally and personally AND have the autonomy to make the decisions and take the actions necessary to do so.
- People who value making significant investments in themselves.
- Kind people.
OwnerShift is an exclusive and customized one on one coaching program for high-performing entrepreneurs and CEOs. It’s designed to guide them to the bigger and brighter personal and professional future they want to own and make their property.
In the OwnerShift program, my client is the Hero, and I am their Guide. I will never have all the answers, but I will always ask the right questions.
My mission is to help every client identify, sharpen, and leverage the tools in themselves, and those in their companies, to make significant progress toward their most important life goals.
