The Small Business Sessions, Enterprise Nation's podcast, is back!
Returning for a fifth series and sponsored by Starling Bank, freelance journalist Dan Martin speaks to some of Britain's best entrepreneurs and experts about their tips and inspiration on how to start and grow a brilliant business. A new episode will be released every Wednesday for the next 12 weeks.
For episode one, we're joined by Ben Keene, co-founder of Rebel Book Club.
How many books do you have that you've never read? It's probably loads. The Japanese describe it as 'tsundoku', the constant act of buying books but not reading them. Ben was a big sufferer!
With his friend Ben Saul-Garner, he looked for a way to be motivated to read all those untouched ideas. Rebel Book Club was the solution. It's now a successful subscription company that brings people together around a love for non-fiction and a desire to turn book insights into action.
In an advice-packed podcast, Ben discusses:
how to grow a subscription model
raising £148,000 and the realities of crowdfunding
switching online during the coronavirus pandemic
how to find your minimum viable audience
...and lots more!
