Kyle McLeod/Small Market Startup

On episode 34 of The Circling Podcast, I have the privilege of sitting down with my friend Kyle Mcleod to talk about, well, a lot. ...  Among his many titles, not excluding husband and dad, Kyle is a product consultant, software engineer, entrepreneur, community organizer and fellow podcast host. In October of 2022, Kyle published the first episode of his podcast, “Small Market Startup.” On his show, Kyle features interviews with experts in their respective fields as he explores what’s required to balance the demands of entrepreneurship, product and business development with quality of life, family, and recreation.  Moving to Bend in 2017 Kyle has not only fallen in love with Central Oregon, but regularly invests in it, as he  organizes and hosts two community groups that meet regularly, focusing on bringing together local software developers and entrepreneurs by creating space where those with similar interests can meet network, and learn.  During our conversation, Kyle takes the opportunity to ask me some really thoughtful questions as we hit on subject matter ranging from, just how thankful I am to the sport of snowboarding to the launch of my own startup, Story Booth.  Yo Kyle, this was a fun one. Thanks for what you’re doing and how you’re doing it. I really enjoyed our conversation and I look forward to many more my friend.

Thanks for listening to The Circling Podcast. Our Theme song was written by Carl Perkins and performed by Erin Cole-Baker and Dr. Erin Zurflu.
