SurePayroll Podcast

Every small business is powered by a bolt of inspiration and the dedicated people who bring it to life.

And the Back of the Napkin podcast is where small business owners can tune in to explore the unique ideas that have launched successful enterprises, and meet entrepreneurs who aren’t afraid to think differently.

In each episode, we’ll sit down with entrepreneurs from all kinds of different industries to learn why they got into business, how their ideas have developed, and what twists and turns they’ve faced along the way. You won’t believe some of the wild ideas that have taken root, and you’ll be able to learn valuable lessons from the mistakes that other entrepreneurs have already made.

Small businesses are the backbone of the American economy, and we hope these stories inspire business owners and consumers alike to dream big, take risks and shop locally.

At SurePayroll, small business is our business, and we understand that a lot goes into running your operation. Our easy online service makes running payroll for small- and micro-businesses a breeze so entrepreneurs can focus less on payroll and taxes and spend more time doing what they do best.

So roll up your sleeves, brew some strong coffee and make sure you’re subscribed on your favorite podcast app. The Back of the Napkin podcast is hosted by SurePayroll’s Stephanie Davis and small business owner Dusty Weis, and launches on January 27.
