The Business Experiment Podcast
About This Show
Once upon a time, Jemimah Ashleigh and Shevonne Joyce each started a business and talked almost every day about the REAL of doing so... They laughed, cried, had a few WHAT THE BLEEP moments, Liam Hemsworth got a mention somewhere and then it dawned on them: THIS IS A THING. The Business Experiment Podcast was born. As the name suggests, it's an experiment involving two entrepreneurs and a cat who decided it was time someone got real about what it's like to run a business for the first time; the good, the bad, the ugly. This is designed to document their personal experiences to inspire you, motivate you and maybe mildly entertain you. The best part is, we have no idea how this will turn out: we have never recorded a podcast before... What better time to start than now?!

Jemimah and Shevonne have a job that gives them the incredible opportunity to meet lots of business owners all over Australia and the world and learn about what the business real is like.
What we've discovered might surprise you - many business owners are living a double life. What's presented to the world about their business can be in stark contrast to the behind the scenes reality. Many business owners are suffering in the face of difficult and complex problems that prevent them from growing successful and sustainable businesses.
There's many reasons why this can occur, but a key reason for this problem is the culture of sugar-coating the start-up grind. Industry experts that say things like 'it's never been a better time to start a business. You don't need any money, all you need is a laptop, a phone and social media account.' This is true to start a business, but to grow it? You need a lot more than that.
Join us as we delve into the not so sugary world of the entrepreneurial double life and get damn real about it. If you are out there and suffering from this, tune in to find out how to overcome it... And guaranteed, you haven't heard this advice before.
