What is Humans of Business?

Humans of Business goes beyond a typical business podcast/video series; focusing not on the what, but the who. Through personal and purposeful conversations, entrepreneur Charlotte Pearce gets to know the humans behind some of the world’s most successful businesses.

Sometimes entrepreneurs seem to be close to a fictional superhero, but behind these perceptions there is a courageous human in pursuit to find meaning, purpose and make an impact on the world.

We are going to leave the practical business processes and financial successes at the door, instead shining a light on the emotional and personal side of these incredible humans of business.

Why does Humans of Business exist?

I love business podcasts and videos, I watch them A LOT but I hear the same stuff, the same questions and the same topics – scale, growth, raising money, overcoming challenges, all incredibly useful but quite often lacking in purpose, values and the emotions of the real human behind the company. It’s about time someone truly took the armour off entrepreneurs, we are not superheroes simply people with a mission and a stand in the world.

Humans of Business was born out of many refreshingly honest and open conversations with my investors. I realised how truly lucky I was to get to know some of the world’s best humans in business in a personal and emotional way. I thought what an incredible gift it would be to share who they are as people, not as CEO’s or entrepreneurs but as humans. So I set about uncovering what it means to be a human of business… and the series was born.
