PODCAST: The insane success of an Irish company selling for millions and the McGinn Sisters on their dream business going bust
Episode two of The Capital B has dropped and the line-up this week is a heady mix of unlikely success stories and crashing failures.
Presented by renowned journalist and author Nick Webb, The Capital B brings you the sharpest and most relevant business features every week. The panel includes JOE founder Niall McGarry and Róisín Hogan, the Irish woman who very nearly became Alan Sugar's business partner on the The Apprentice.
This week Colm Lyon, the self-made Irishman worth over €100 million, talks about the qualities every successful business person needs to have.
The panel tackle each other over the best ways to loose and the worst ways to win, someone accuses Niall of getting botox and Róisín offers up the most depressingly smart piece of advice we’ve ever heard.
Two ex-Google workers wander in for a chat about the bouquet business they set up with zero knowledge of flowers and the McGinn sisters go through the seven stages of grief and recovery after their fashion start-up, OPSH, folded in January.
