Net Positive with Blake Emal

Net Positive with Blake Emal
Net Positive follows the inner thoughts and trajectory of work-in-progress, 20-something Blake Emal. On this show, you’ll get a mix of documentation and interviews. Look, I have big dreams just like the next gal or guy. The only difference? I’m not going to pretend that I’m a millionaire with all the answers (because I’m not and I don’t). I want to document the EXPERIENCE of growing in my career and skillset, rather than acting like something I’m not. This podcast goes out to all the solopreneurs, entrepreneurs, and wantrepreneurs that keep it 100. No fluff, just cool stuff. Support this podcast:
