The Newest Generation of Entrepreneurs? Podcasters.

Like any startup founder, podcasters have to identify a need, a minimally viable product and — the hardest part — a source of money.

When we think about entrepreneurs, we often think about people who have risked everything — an established career, financial security and personal relationships — to build and monetize a hip new startup. But startup founders are not the only entrepreneurs risking stability in favor of the unknown.

For most top-performing entrepreneurs in major leadership roles, this self-criticism can come up frequently and ironically make us even less productive.

Millennials And Gen Z Are The New Bosses Of The Boardroom

Millennials and Gen Z are taking over the boardroom. Their purchasing power and influence is growing and in order for corporations to succeed they must get familiar with the demographic.

There is growing intergenerational convergence around the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues affecting organizations. Millennials, born 1980 to 1995, recently became the largest segment of the U.S. labor market at 34%, and greatest share of the U.S. population (24%). Gen Z, born after 1996, is growing both in numbers (21% of U.S. population) and consumer market importance. By contrast, key senior management decision-makers and corporate board members tend to be from those groups born before 1980 – Baby Boomers, born 1946 to 1964 (22% of U.S.), and Gen Z, born 1965 to 1980 (21%).

Drift thrives by acting less like a software company and more like a reality TV show. Here’s how to follow their lead.

“Every sales rep is going to tell me that their thing is faster, it’s better, it’s easier to use, so I don’t know who to trust. So as a company you really only have one choice to compete today. That’s to be real, it’s to be authentic, to be human.”
