"A lot of business journalism is about telling the stories of people who have spectacular successes, building companies where seemingly nothing ever goes wrong. But that's not what most entrepreneurs experience, and that's not what the 21 Hats Podcast is about. Every week, our business owners share their challenges, their mistakes, their successes, the unvarnished reality of what it really takes to build a business," says Chief Content Office & Podcast Host, Loren Feldman.
Business owners will share their business knowledge through insights, lessons, and stories, like whether their businesses are as profitable as they should be and what's the right time and process to fire someone. When the full 21 Hats membership-based platform is launched later this year, it will provide community forums, articles and networking opportunities aimed at taming business chaos.
"This is a unique way for me to share my business story in a way that feels real. Loren, who I respect so much has brought together a diverse, super-smart group of business owners who open up and really discuss business in a way that is approachable. This podcast is so GOOD and after listening, I hope you will absolutely leave having learned something that you can apply to your own business," says Laura Zander, CEO of Jimmy Beans Wool.
The podcast roster of business owners includes:

About Jimmy Beans Wool: At the downturn of the dotcom boom, former Silicon Valley engineers Laura and Doug Zander moved to the mountains and opened up a tiny yarn shop in Truckee, California. Jimmy, as Laura is lovingly known, sold coffee alongside the wool (hence the Beans in the name) and Jimmy Beans Wool was born. In 2004, the company settled down in Reno, Nevada where they currently reside today. They occupy an expansive 20,000 sq. ft. warehouse, are considered one of the country's leading destination yarn shops, employ 35 team members, and have built a loyal following and impressive online presence. Along with yarn, Jimmy Beans also provides consumers the most innovative crafting products and accessories, recently acquiring Namaste and della Q, two beloved companies amongst knitters, crocheters, and makers. Both companies sell popular designer handbags, project totes, organizers, accessories, and more. Jimmy Beans will continue to develop products under their patent pending Jimmy's SmartStix, plus hooks, needles, and notions.
