By the way, I hope you enjoyed listening to a different style of show – The last episode I did was an interview style. I don’t do it often, as it takes longer to edit and for some reason I often encounter technical issues. Maybe it’s my outdated podcasting equipment, I think it’s time I upgrade. But the reason I wanted to bring Jovana to the show was because I thought it would be an interesting conversation for you guys to hear.

There was a lot of new vocabulary for you. If you’re a business owner, or planning to leave your full time job and start your own business like a side-hustle for example, you’d definitely benefit from listening to the last episode, that episode was number 298.

So during the interview, as Jovana was talking, I was taking notes of new words and phrases that popped up which we haven’t covered in this show before. So they probably sounded foreign to you.

Today, I’m doing a follow-up episode to go through the following new words:

– Procurement, Supply Chain
– Raising Funds
– Brainstorming Ideas

These were brought up in the interview and I’d like to take this opportunity to clarify them for you.

So let’s get cracking.

Business Vocabulary: #1 Number one – Procurement and Supply Chain

What does the term ‘procurement’ actually mean?
