The Growth Show Podcast FAQs:

Why should I listen to the Growth Show podcast?

With almost 200 episodes, the Growth Show podcast boasts interviews with some of the greatest minds in business, entrepreneurship, and marketing, including Seth Godin, Daniel Pink, Amy Chang, Phillipe Kahn, Guy Kawasaki, and more. The Growth Show digs into the growth philosophies of corporations that grew huge seemingly overnight, startups that took time to gain traction, and the benefits and problems stemming from both.

The Growth Show also features several episodes focused on personal growth and how to reframe perceived weaknesses as strengths. You'll find episodes about working hard to get what you want, really understanding what you want in the first place, and the dangers of workaholism. The Growth Show podcast combines inspiration with real talk about operating a business, and with most episodes running 30 minutes or less is an easy add to your daily commute or daily breaks.

What is HubSpot?

HubSpot is an SaaS company offering CRM platforms for marketing, sales, and service. Their philosophy is that you can achieve all you need to without being aggressive or using "in your face" techniques, so their software focuses on inbound campaigns that show measurable ROI. The basic CRM that underlies all the other HubSpot software is free, and their pricing for the "add-on" software varies based on the number of clients.

This non-invasive philosophy of marketing and customer service allows HubSpot unique access into the thinking and methodology that best helps businesses grow, an insight that's reflected in the Growth Show podcast. You can learn more about HubSpot and their SaaS offerings on their website.
