The Daily Grind Business Podcast interviews successful business owners and people in hopes to inspire the next great entrepreneur.
Welcome to The Daily Grind Business Podcast Weekly Summaries. Each week the interviewees impart their wisdom by sharing their experiences. Learn from them. To connect with them and to receive some free information please click on the links below.
There is a common thread with all successful entrepreneurs and that is the importance of investing in both your business and personal growth. So each week we also share with you titles of books that either these entrepreneurs have written or suggested that you read.
The people who Colin interviews didn’t just make a million dollars. They persevered. A lot of them failed; but they got back up, dusted themselves off and got back in the race. They had an undying belief that what they were doing was the right thing and would eventually take off – it just needed time and more hard work. In the process, they reached out to mentors, read books, listened to podcasts and audiobooks and attended seminars. They got rid of their egos and they learned from people who were doing exactly what they wanted to do.
We are passionate about helping entrepreneurs get started in their businesses so this is why we have compiled weekly notes from our weekly podcasts. The entrepreneurs who so graciously offered their time to be interviewed are passionate about giving back and helping others as we do.

3. Nathan Hirsch Connects Business Owners with the Top 1% of Freelancers
Nathan Hirsch bootstrapped two companies to become multi-million dollar businesses and continues to run them today. He started the first, Portlight, in his college dorm room selling textbooks on Amazon.com in 2009. He and his biz partners expanded to other product categories and have sold over $20 mil on the marketplace. At its peak, they were managing over 500,000 products on their Amazon store from over 1,000 drop ship suppliers.
After much frustration hiring through Upwork and other platforms, they started their own online hiring marketplace, specialized for eCommerce biz owners, in the fall 2015. FreeeUp.com now services over 2,000 online businesses and is on pace to hit $5+ million this year. Nathan serves as the CEO handling client acquisition, software management, and internal team growth.
4. Maddy Niebauer, The Chief of Staff Guru
Maddy Niebauer, CEO and Founder of vChief, helps overwhelmed leaders get on
top of their to-do list and spend their time where they can have the most impact.
The virtual chief of staff service supports leaders from all sectors and domains,
who are looking for high-level strategic support on a part-time basis.
Maddy spent 5 years as a Chief of Staff at Teach For America, working virtually
with a member of the organization’s leadership team. She discovered she
loved the fast-paced, ever-changing nature of the work, and the ability to truly
leverage a leader’s time so they could be more productive and successful. She
knew many leaders could benefit from this service on a part-time basis, which
inspired her to launch vChief.
vChief’s networks of chiefs of staff are seasoned leaders with a depth of
experience in strategy and operations, which can help visionary leaders, maximize
their time. Maddy has more than 20 years of professional experience, including
8 as a chief of staff, and has her MBA from Columbia Business School and
Bachelor’s Degree from Stanford University.
On a personal note, Maddy travelled with her family for 8 months internationally
in Central and South America while running her own company from the road.
She discovered great tips for working remotely internationally, travel with family
and “world-schooling” kids.
