What’s it like giving up a six-figure job in order to start your own business?

Find out from this week’s Wild Business Growth Podcast guest, Elise Gelwicks! Elise founded InternView in 2018 to help companies build meaningful internship programs and host professional development workshops for interns. She’s doing all this after leaving her career as a Fortune 500 Customer Business Partner and management consultant. She also may or may not have been a classmate of mine at Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business.

Listen to the super real episode to hear how Elise started InternView, how she’s managed to get press in The New York Times and ABC News, and what you can do to create an effective internship program. Hear the episode on Apple Podcasts / iTunes and your other favorite audio platforms – and subscribe and leave a 5-star review if you’re ready to build an unmatched internship program.

Based in the Chicago area and want to fire up your interns? Sign up for Elise’s Empowered Intern Workshop – it’s on June 21st!
