Are Entrepreneurs Really Greedy, or Just Unfairly Accused? – 246

Life as an entrepreneur can often feel a bit like living in your own world, isolated from “real life.” 

E-commerce, specifically, evolves fast enough to make even the most experienced business owner’s head spin. How can we manage our personal relationships, success, and newfound lifestyle when things start to take off?

It can be uncomfortable to talk about, but that doesn’t mean we should shy away from it. Today we are discussing the perceptions of entrepreneurs (and why you shouldn’t be a slave to them). 

On this episode of the AM/PM Podcast, Tim Jordan sits down with Lillian Roberts, founder of FinTech company Xendoo. Lillian’s entrepreneurial career started with humble beginnings in the arcade as a kid with some very clever pinball ingenuity. Since then, she hasn’t looked back, founding over a half dozen businesses – all in different industries and all without failure. Now that’s a track record worth celebrating. Today, Lillian enjoys success with Xendoo, an online bookkeeping service that successfully walks the tightrope between prioritizing technology and keeping business the way it should be: people first.

Lillian is living proof that being born with the entrepreneurial bug is just as effective (if not more so) than that infamous “silver spoon.” So much of running an online business revolves around the numbers. But what about our personal relationships that ebb and flow along the way?
