Inspirational and Entertaining
I'm a millennial, so of course "liking" something NPR-related is in my trend-blood. The truth is, though, this is a great direction for NPR to take around the enterpenurial spirit and showing what it takes to "make it" or "get there". The best part is there's a payoff. Obviously, not everyone makes it to their goal. There are probably a thousand [plus] more stories where the loss of sweat and blood led to defeat, whether eventual or momentary, but this reminds us of the human spirt and the drive it takes to make things happen. Sure, it makes it tough to know some fail, but it makes it worth to know many still have succeeded. That's what we're reminded of here. This podcast shows that that dream can become a reality. Specifically in Sara Blakely's story about creating Spanx, we see, and she even admits to, moments where giving up was the clear, logical choice; however, she pressed on. The take away here is to keep going. Keep building. Keep fighting. Keep dreaming. Whether we fail or end up telling a story of our own glory days on a similary podcast or on another medium, we inspire each other. I believe that's what NPR set out to do, and for that: mission successful.Read full review »
