Podcast Reviews

  • Great information
    September 6, 2018 by Dtero111111 from United States

    As an entrepreneur myself, this show is something I look forward to listening! Every show is full of great content.

  • This is Free?!
    December 29, 2017 by aabell03 from United States

    Josh packs a ton of great information for the aspiring entrepreneur in his show. I have been a fan since I got recommended by a friend. The amazing part is that he’s doing this for free. The knowledge within is worth big time bucks.

  • New Talent, Great Premise
    December 7, 2017 by Music2Heart101 from United States

    Josh is a quality interviewer & has a solid background in entrepreneurship. His insights with his guests are different than other podcasts because he’s got real world experience behind it.

  • Incredible!
    November 27, 2017 by Trevor Norton from United States

    What tremendous value Josh brings to his audience, an absolute treat to listen to!

  • Minding your Bizness
    November 13, 2017 by garbageghost from United States

    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.

  • A Wealth of Information
    November 9, 2017 by A Wealth of Information from United States

    Greast podcast & host. Josh always has a smile on his face & make the interview feel more personable & easier to connect with guests. The lessons learned from hearing & seeing others overcome challenges is really inspiring & motivating.

About Josh

Josh was chatting with an investor group and heard them say, "we don't bet on the horse, we bet on the jockey...." They were referring to investing in the entrepreneurs who have a good idea, a strong mindset, and relentless passion for execution.

The Bet The Jockey Show is a show all about the stories of the founders and investors behind the entrepreneurial ecosystem.

This is an unedited unscripted interview style show where Josh breaks down all barriers and asks personal questions about life, wisdom, failures, and fears of those who are in the entrepreneurial trenches daily.

Josh also lets the audience in behind the mic and shares the most personal information from his entrepreneurial journal... including his biggest failures, fears, insecurities, and the celebrated hard-earned victories!

Hang onto your horses, you're in for a ride with me Josh Wilson
