Blake and Jacob Morgan met at a conference ten years ago and it was love at first sight. One month later Blake packed a suitcase and moved to SF to be with Jacob. They've been inseparable ever since, but it wasn't always easy.
They have weathered many disappointments and wins together whether that was short-term jobs, layoffs, failed businesses, rejections, and everything in-between.
They've taken their critical lessons, learned, and turned them into a new co-hosted podcast teaching you to Be Your Own Boss, because that's exactly what they've each done in their own way.
Jacob has had his own business for over 13 years, and Blake for almost 5. They both laughingly deem themselves unemployable, and have figured out how to work for themselves. They want to give you the shortcuts so you don't have to struggle.
Jacob has published 5 books and Blake has published 2. They have presented at hundreds of conferences, built and sold online products, had their content viewed by millions each year, and even enjoy sitting side by side every single day as they navigate the sometimes unpredictable and rough waters of self-employment.
They've learned how to manage entrepreneurship, marriage, parenthood, and much more. This podcast brings you the insights and stories on how they did it.
Blake and Jacob want to make life easier for you as you navigate your own road to self-employment and entrepreneurship, whether it's a distant dream or something you've already started.
