How to Avoid Entrepreneurial Bullsh*t: A Candid Convo on Sleaze, Collabs, and True Crime with the Hosts of Pass The Bullsh*t

Episode 112,   May 19, 07:02 PM

Are you falling into the copy-and-paste culture of online business building? Are you drowning in marketing "shoulds" doled out by gurus and one-size-fits-all peddlers? Are you sick to death of collaborations that take more than they give? And - speaking of death - have you ever taken business inspiration from true crime detectives?

In this special episode, Annie P. Ruggles is joined by Crystal Tosh and Amy Hartmann, co-founders of So True Digital and hosts of the unapologetically fabulous and sometimes scathing podcast, Pass The Bullshit. Their insights are not to be missed if you're feeling turned off by the lack of honesty, transparency, and, frankly, decency in the online marketing world, and you wouldn't mind having a laugh or two along the way to freedom.
