The Be Your Own Boss (BYOB) Podcast

By Blake and Jacob Morgan

Blake and Jacob Morgan met at a conference ten years ago and it was love at first sight. One month later Blake packed a suitcase and moved to SF to be with Jacob. They've been inseparable ever since but it wasn't always easy. They have weathered many disappointments and wins together whether that was short-term jobs, layoffs, failed businesses, rejections and everything in-between. They've taken their critical lessons learned and turned them into a new co-hosted podcast teaching you to Be Your Own Boss, because that's exactly what they've each done in their own way. Jacob has had his own business for 13 years, and Blake for almost 5. They both laughingly deem themselves unemployable, and have figured out how to work for themselves. They want to give you the short-cuts so you don't have to struggle. Jacob has written five published books and Blake has published two books. They have presented at hundreds of conferences, built and sold online products, have their content viewed by millions each year, and even enjoy sitting side by side every single day as they navigate the sometimes unpredictable and rough waters of self-employment. They've learned how to manage entrepreneurship, marriage, parenthood and much more. This podcast brings you the insights and stories on how they did it - Blake and Jacob want to make life easier for you as you navigate your own road to self-employment and entrepreneurship, whether it's a distant dream or something you've already started on now.
