Barrack Obama joins Reed Hoffman
This week, Masters of Scale featured Barrack Obama! Listen to the episode on Bullhorn.
During the podcast, Hoffman explores Obama’s history and the journey he took to become the 44th president of the United States of America.
Obama’s journey is both inspirational and humbling. It showcases what it takes to overcome hardships and the lessons he learned to become elected into the White House. What’s amazing about Barack’s story is his grassroots origins, having made a name for himself early in his career as a community organizer when his sights were set on increasing voter participation in the less fortunate neighborhoods of Chicago.
Inspiring Messages from the former POTUS
You may be asking, “what does Barack Obama have to do with being a business owner?”
“I do think there’s an entrepreneurial element to a successful presidential campaign,” Barack said during his interview.
What Hoffman wants listeners to walk away from after listening to this episode of Masters of Scale is that large-scale operations like becoming the president of the United States doesn’t happen overnight. In fact, whether Barrack Obama knew it or not, he was preparing for his presidency from before the thought manifested in his mind.
