When I came up for the concept for The Biz Chix Podcast, I knew I wanted to interview amazing female entrepreneurs, but there were a number cool dudes I knew I would want to chat with as well. So I decided to not exclude men from my show. The first cool dude I can remember in my life was The Fonz from Happy Days. No one else was cooler on TV.
My “plan” is to interview 90% women and 10% men, but that is an idea and not a rule.
I thought you might enjoy seeing the Cool Dudes all in one place. The first cool dude I had on the show was John Lee Dumas from the Entrepreneur on Fire podcast. He has been not only an inspiration to start my own podcast, but also a mentor.
The other cool dudes below have diverse backgrounds and businesses. Oh and a bit of info from the inside, cool dudes do not like to have a lot of pre and post interview chat. 😉
