As a Gen-Xer who left a large corporation after 23 to be employee #4 in a start up … this podcast has not only helped me get up to speed in working in a start up, but has also challenged my way of thinking and helped me develop my thought processes. Alex’s insights, honesty, and transparency really make this program authentic and valuable. He thinks about the content, and delivers. Jesse is a great addition to the team, as his perspective and successes really compliment Alex. Keep up the good work.
Always entertaining and I take a little tidbit every week! If you want to learn about a wide range of topics you can adapt to any type of business this is the podcast. We’re testing out a product idea on Kickstarter in the next couple months and would have never thought about using that platform before!
Must listen if you run a business, are starting a business, or want to start a business. Listening to Alex & Jesse feels like hanging out with 2 pals giving you all the right advice.
I love to tune in to hear the thought processes that Alex and Jessie go through in making decisions both big and small. This is a big help to me in shaping how I view my problems and how I develop solutions for dealing with work and life issues.
Love the unfiltered insights coming out every episode. The hosts are funny yet vulnerable, and super inspiring to seize the day!
I have been a big fan of the Morning Brew newsletter for years now, and I just found this podcast a few months ago. While I am not an entrepreneur, I still get a lot out of the conversations and the overall business insight discussed. I also love the free flowing model of this podcast and the conversations. Big fan of the new format as well!
This pod is fantastic for stirring up business ideas and actionable insights to try on startups, side projects, or angel investing. Keep up the great work!
I always enjoy ending my monotonous work day with the creative thinking Alex and Jesse bring to the table in the world of entrepreneurship!
I look forward to every episode of this show. It’s great to hear from successful entrepreneurs and get real time info and feedback on things that matter to me as a founder. Let’s GOOOOOO!!!!
I sincerely enjoy every episode of The Crazy Ones. Every time I feel like I have a better understanding of what I always felt was a scary and complex business world that wasn't for me, but whether the topic is Ethereum,How to Advance Your Career, a big industry acquisition or how to be more productive, Alex and Jesse’s frank, open, honest and often vulnerable insights set the stage perfectly to help you understand the things that make business work. If you want to build your confidence in being able to think and speak at the level that is going to move your career and life forward, you can't afford to miss an episode.
I love how detailed and easy to understand this podcast is. They share practical advice for real life work situations. More than anything the conversation is authentic.
Been listening to Jesse on Business Breakdowns and always enjoyed Morning Brew as well from Alex. This has been a fun team up to listen to them not just talk through other companies like they usually would but some of the real challenges they faced before or continue to tackle day to day with there new ventures. Feel like they will keep growing to challenge some of the other great ones in the podcast space!
Love listening to these crazy ambitious guys. They tell stories and conduct interviews that are applicable to business at ALL stages AND…. to life in general. I always walk away inspired or having learned something. Regardless of their independent successes they remain humble and relatable. So grateful for their guidance. I wish they could speak at every high school in the United States lol
I’ve been following Alex and Jesse separately, love what they’ve been doing in the email newsletter space (Alex) and Ad-tech (Jesse) for years. So finding this podcast and listening to their insights and raw take has been awesome and very relatable. They both get vulnerable and talk about feels and emotions, not just business, media, or tech. Truly refreshing. Keep it up!
Alex and Jesse provide awesome insights and perspectives from their experiences as successful startup founders. They do a good job sharing the good, the bad and the ugly, at a time when Start-Up founding has been most glamorized. This is a great resource for people who have started their own businesses, for those that want to work with startups, and for those that want to apply entrepreneurial skills to their role for career growth/enhancement. Definitely go back and listen to old Founders Journal episodes too.
Even after 25 years in business, we learn something new with each episode. Keep ‘em coming!
I’m learning so much! Love the energy. I’m consistently motivated and inspired. Thanks, Alex and Jesse!
Whether you’re a solopreneur or have an entire team working for you, this podcast has value. Both Alex and Jesse offer advice based on each of their experiences as founders who built their businesses then subsequently sold them. I’m really impressed with the amount of self awareness and candor they bring to their stories.
They have done a really great job with this podcast. I always feel like I can pull knowledge and experiences from their podcasts to use in my work and personal life. The podcast is great for entrepreneurs and people who are curious about growing in the business world.
I’ve given this as homework to some fellow entrepreneurs who I brainstorm with because Jesse and Alex bring value every episode. Process, tools, methodology, leading, company organization, it’s all there and ready for consumption. Thank you both for the candor and value…it’s well worth it. Great listen!
The wisdom that Alex and Jesse share is truly invaluable. They have changed my mind in so many areas! Thanks for the awesome pod fellas. 💪
Love this podcast - not just the same business platitudes over and over but actual real tall, personal stories, vulnerability, candor and great reflections.
Alex and Jesse always bring a ton of great insight and knowledge to the weekly episodes. Great hearing their perspectives on building successful businesses!
Jesse and Alex episodes are alway insightful. I love the dialogue between the 2. They are are top 7 podcast in my current lineup top 10 overall
From Founders Journal to The Crazy Ones, Alex & Jesse have done a great job evolving the podcast to include long-form content for the business builder. Looking forward to seeing what they come up with next.
As a 5 unit brick and mortar business owner I find valuable nuggets and actionable tips each week. If it isn’t queued first when it drops I go grab it to listen.
Love the format that emulates what Alex has done in the Founders Journal. The episode on key takeaways from Building a Second Brain contains great concepts for a developing entrepreneur listener like me. The style is inspiring in itself as an excellent method by which to encode information into long term memory by subsequently teaching others what your main takeaways are. Keep up the incredible work and thank you for sharing your journey to help guide me on my own path of startup life and entrepreneurship. All the best, Steve
I have been an avid listener of the The Crazy Ones since day one. I have an excitement when each episode comes out. Alex and Jesse are not only tremendously insightful around Business and Entrepreneurship, but they are relatable to any entrepreneur, at any stage. Not only is the show entertaining, but there are actionable takeaways from each episode. From a new entrepreneur in the early stages of launching my company, they help me get through the grind of it each day. Can’t wait to see this show continue to grow and expand.
Well worth listening, reflecting, and taking action on what you learn.
