Why I Started a Podcast

Sponsored Content provided by Chris Capone - CPA; Owner and Fractional CFO, Capone & Associates

Similar to my story of How I finally Became an Entrepreneur in which I discuss how I always wanted to own a business, but never had any good ideas… I have always wanted to be on a podcast. So, I figured the best way to get on a podcast would be to start my own - HA!

On a more serious note, I am obsessed with personal and professional development - trying to be 1% better every day in all facets of life.  And there are so many people in the Greater Wilmington Area that have incredible stories in which I, and We, can learn from, and ultimately share knowledge and support our local businesses and communities.  
Fractional with Chris Capone and Associates is a podcast about business owners and leaders, and their stories, trials and tribulations. It’s light-hearted, constructive conversations that promote our local entrepreneurs while sharing some incredible stories of how they have built their businesses and lifestyles.
We have recorded 6 episodes thus far, 3 have been released, 3 are in the hopper. Please help me spread awareness and the stories of our guests by liking or subscribing to the podcast.  Maybe even give a few a quick listen… If you or anyone you know is a local business owner or leader, and want to share your story and experience, please get in touch. Text/Call me @ 910-415-7715.
