Drive - The Business Podcast

By Richard Osborne
What is the DRIVE behind business owners that motivates them to keep pushing their business despite all odds? You’ll find those answers – and more – in DRIVE, the podcast for business owners.

I’m Richard Osborne, founder of UK Business Forums (UKBF), the UK’s largest and most active community for start-ups and small business owners. For nearly twenty years now, UKBF has been providing support, unbiased critical discussion, debate, advice and a fantastic array of free resources and essential tools to help people of all backgrounds grow/start a successful business. And now, I have created DRIVE, a platform for business owners/founders to speak about their journey to business success.

My guests come from all walks of life; everyday people you may meet in the street, stand next to in the queue at a coffee shop, people who may be fighting to pay bills, wages, who are struggling with marketing, and who may be feeling very alone in their quest to pursue their passion and build a successful business.

Find out about their DRIVE on this podcast, including the challenges they overcame, what kept them going, insider tips that could help you succeed in your own entrepreneurial journey, the ups and downs of running a business, the impact it has on them and their loved ones, and much more.

You can also tune into our fortnightly sister podcast GROW hosted by my colleague, budding entrepreneur Jacob Collins-Brown, who is on a quest to find out everything he needs to know about growing a successful small business by talking to other entrepreneurs and business experts on subjects such as raising finance, marketing and the skills needed for success.

If you are a small business owner with a journey you’d share, or if you know of someone who would like to share their business story, I’d love to hear from you. You can reach out to me on social media via any of my channels and I’ll get straight back to you.
