Bet The Jockey Show

Josh takes you on his journey as he tries to recover from a financial catastrophe and choosing entrepreneurship as his path.

He began the show when he was on top of the world, making money and building an empire.  However, a few bad deals completely wiped him out and now he has to pivot quickly to feed his family.

Along the way, he interviews and shares the message of incredible entrepreneurs to learn about building businesses and rebuilding his life. 

Armed with a computer, a phone, microphone, and a negative bank account, Josh shares his daily journey of an entrepreneur who lost it all and is fighting to climb again.

Minding your Bizness

Really personable, great energy! Optimistic take on what can be a very dry and defeating subject. The host could definitely stand to get to the point and edit down content; the host can ramble and get caught up in his own enthusiasm, distracting from his focus. When he gets there, though, its a valuable insight from a down-to-earth perspective.
