Is it dangerous to call our work something else? In this episode I unpack the argument that entrepreneurs don’t have work / life balance, but life / life balance. We need work. We need purpose. And I explain why I think the words we use around that are important.

#002: Podcasting Tips
In this episode I share the research and plan I've created for creating a podcast from the road without a lot of bells and whistles.  This includes the tech, the editing, and the microphones. Audacious Entrepreneur on the Move is my fourth podcast!  Since my first podcast in 2016, Degrees of Separation, I have learned a lot about what works, and what doesn't.  Today I am the cohost of the Angles of Lattitude Podcast, and producer of the Stories of Elders Podcast which shares audio from the research for my book of the same name. Check out my podcasting course on Udemy:  https://www.udemy.com/audacious-podcast-course/ My podcast guide can be found on my website here: https://veronicakirin.com/product/the-jump-start-podcast-guide/
