Running your own business takes grit. Whether you already support yourself or if you're just starting to plan building your own thing, you know it's hard work.
Creating and running a business is also exciting. It's your freedom, your livelihood, the work of your hands. It's cool as shit.
Here at Fizzle we help indie entrepreneurs make weekly progress on their business because it's tough to build your thing and we all need help.
Luke Skywalker had Yoda;
Cinderella had a fairy godmother;
Jesse Pinkman had Walter White;
and you've got us. :)

“Never laughed so hard while being totally enlightened!” is a common response to our podcast. (Check any of our 450+ global reviews and you'll see that sentiment a lot). If you crave irreverence, honesty and insights, you're going to love this show. (Also, the head of marketing will get mad at me if I don't tell you it's a #1 rated business show.)

Who we are
Corbett Barr is Fizzle's fearless leader and CEO. After a decade of venture-backed startups, Fortune 500 consulting and bootstrapped blogs he cofounded Fizzle, bringing his experience to new founders everywhere. He mostly lives in Portland, OR, where the dry cider flows like unicycles over the Willamette.
Chase Reeves is Fizzle's Creative Director. After a decade of designing and developing some of the biggest blogs on the web he cofounded Fizzle with Corbett. He lives in Portland, OR, where the espresso literally makes his brain break.
Barrett Brooks is Fizzle's Head of Growth. When he's not fiddling with spreadsheets, he's reading academic journals or cooking. He lives in Portland, OR, where the gluten free bakeries give him powdered sugar giggles.
Steph Crowder is Fizzle's Head of Member Success. When she's not in the Fizzle community helping people build their thing, she's hanging with Rudy (dog) and John (husband) in Chicago. She must like the cold or something. Chicago!?
