Elzie Flenard The Mayor of Podcast Town

I knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur as a teenager. I would create my own board games and basketball leagues in my bedroom. I would dream of flying cars and spend hours solving problems with business ideas.

I've had just about every job out there - I was a janitor for a short time, I've worked fast food, I worked in an ammunition factory (wasn't a bad gig actually), I've cleaned the bottom of barges --- I even worked in a CD manufacturing company! I've worked in corporate as an electronics technician, electrical engineer and operations manager.

These experiences shaped me. They helped me become the business leader and entrepreneur I am today. I've been podcasting since 2016 and I look forward to many more years of having conversations with bright minds from all walks of life.

I get to live my dream of being an entrepreneur. I get to chart my own path and impact others through my work ... I'm truly Livin' the Dream!
