The Cubicle Escape Pod
Summary: This show is all about small business. On the show we talk mostly about issues that bootstrappers, small business owners or those just pondering starting a new business will face on a daily basis. The topics range from idea creation, marketing, branding, public relations, accounting and legal issues. We like to have fun with the show, so we'll talk about some current events in the business world, make fun of ourselves and "fart around" (as one listener so elegantly put it).
Matt and Jon continue their conversation about rebooting their business with a new idea. They talk about the incubation process of the idea and initial market research and feasibility of the new concept. Visit the website at cubicleescape.com for Show Notes, Forum, Modcast and Blogs.
