Why?

The journey of the entrepreneur is undoubtedly an undulating journey of peaks and troughs – where failures are reframed as opportunities to start again and become essential learning experiences. This podcast explores the world of the Irish entrepreneur and engages with people making a difference. They share their stories; of how they got started; what keeps them going; of betrayals; intrigue; surprises; setbacks and ultimately success – however they define it. Dr Lollie Mancey has walked the walk as a serial entrepreneur herself and brings you into the world of people just like you – who found their passion and made it their business.
