The Iowa Idea: Alex Hillman

“I’m really bad at faking it.”

In this episode of The Iowa Idea Podcast, I sit down with Alex Hillman. Alex is always thinking about the intersection of people, relationships, trust, and business. These days, he splits his time between running Indy Hall (Philadelphia’s oldest coworking space), teaching creative people how to bootstrap their own business, and collaborating with people and organizations towards the goal of helping 10,000 people become sustainably independent by 2029.

Alex and I talk about business, creativity, community, collaboration, and his journey that led him to create Indy Hall, as well as his latest book The Tiny MBA. We discuss the importance of trust and authenticity to build ongoing partnerships and business collaborations.

It was an honor to have Alex join the podcast. I really appreciated his insights and passion. Thanks to Alex Hillman for joining me. I hope you enjoy the episode.
