Made In Mississippi

As an entrepreneur myself, I’ve learned so much from podcast. It’s an amazing platform to grow and educate yourself. Yet, all of the podcast I listen to are about entrepreneurs and business leaders in NY, LA, and Silicon Valley. There’s not a podcast to highlight those winning in Mississippi. I feel strongly this is one of the reasons many entrepreneurs are leaving our state - they feel it’s easier to succeed in bigger cities. This is the reason I almost left a few years ago. But It’s not true. These are the stories of Mississippians who have made something. I hope you are challenged and encouraged by their stories of entrepreneurs winning in our state.
