The Diary Of A CEO with Steven Bartlett

DOAC

A few years ago I was a broke, university dropout, at 18 I built an industry leading social media marketing company, and at 27 I resigned as CEO. At 28 I co-founded Flight Story – a marketing and communications company, and thirdweb - a software platform, making it easy to build web3 applications. I then launched private equity fund, Flight Fund, to accelerate the next generation of European unicorns. During this time I decided to launch 'The Diary Of A CEO' podcast with the simple mission of providing an unfiltered journey into the remarkable stories and untold dimensions of the world’s most influential people, experts and thinkers. Thank you for listening. My New Book: https://g2ul0.app.link/DOAC IG: https://www.instagram.com/steven LI: https://www.linkedin.com/in/stevenbartlett-123 read less

Our Editor's Take

The Diary Of A CEO with Steven Bartlett podcast is an intimate exploration of entrepreneurship. What started as a personal diary has become a series of insightful interviews.

But who is Steven Bartlett? Listeners may know him as the youngest investor on the TV show Dragons' Den. He left college without graduating to pursue his dreams. He founded the marketing agency Social Chain and has continued to build on this success. He's a best-selling author, speaker, and content creator. The Diary Of A CEO with Steven Bartlett podcast tells his story.

The podcast began with Steven sharing his journey to becoming a CEO. He opens up about the glamorization of the role and how he believes this is untrue in reality. He shares the immense sacrifice required to succeed among all the highs. It's an intimate portrayal that Steven shares in such an honest and humble way.

Throughout the series, Steven interviews other CEOs to understand their experiences. Female podcaster Alex Cooper joins for an emotional episode. She talks about her top podcast, Call Her Daddy, and how she became such a successful star. Her story is one of betrayal, heartbreak, and the growth of a strong female community.

Entrepreneur Mo Gawdat shares a hack to train one's brain for positive thinking. Mo was the chief business officer at Google, but after a family tragedy, his purpose in life changed. Now he strives to make as many people as happy as possible.

Steven has connected with many inspiring people on the podcast, from CEOs to mental health experts. Dr. Gabor Mate talks about trauma and how to escape the control of one's past. Legendary skater Tony Hawk reveals a tale of regret alongside his incredible career. Neuroscientist Tali Sharot informs listeners about optimism bias and how to achieve happiness.

The Diary Of A CEO with Steven Bartlett podcast is much more than Steven's diary. He shares personal conversations with inspiring guests from Derren Brown to Whitney Wolfe Herd. It's a weekly podcast with hundreds of episodes to enjoy.

Moment 152: The Top 4 Most Successful Stories From Women in Business!

Moment 152: The Top 4 Most Successful Stories From Women in Business!
This moment is a compilation of some of the most successful women to ever appear on The Diary Of A CEO, discussing the biggest hurdles that women have to overcome on the road to success. Karen Brady CBE, former managing director of Birmingham City F.C tells how on her first away game, it wasn’t believed that she could have a place in the boardroom and was mistaken for a player's wife or partner. Ever since, she has been driven to show the importance of true equality of treatment for people. Whitney Wolfe Herd, the founder of Bumble, says that one of the key reasons for Bumble’s success in a crowded dating app market was that it aimed at women and what they wanted, compared to all the other apps which ignored women to focus on male customers. Trinny Woodall, CEO of Trinny London, says that by starting a successful business in mid life, it proves that age is just a number and that energy alongside trusting yourself and your ideas is everything. Finally, Reshma Saujani, CEO of Girls Who Code, believes women have been sold the propaganda that they aren’t good or smart enough, and are left doubting their own abilities. Instead, she says that women have to say no and believe that they are deserving of success now.
