Learn from history's greatest entrepreneurs. Every week I read a biography of an entrepreneur and find ideas you can use in your work. This quote explains why: "There are thousands of years of history in which lots and lots of very smart people worked very hard and ran all types of experiments on how to create new businesses, invent new technology, new ways to manage etc. They ran these experiments throughout their entire lives. At some point, somebody put these lessons down in a book. For very little money and a few hours of time, you can learn from someone’s accumulated experience. There is so much more to learn from the past than we often realize. You could productively spend your time reading experiences of great people who have come before and you learn every time." —Marc Andreessen

Amazing!!!

This podcast is a Gift. The host's perception that it's only for founders and entrepreneurs is mistaken. The podcast beautifully distills over 2000 years' worth of life and experience into easily digestible audio. I highly recommend this podcast to anyone, from teenagers to people of all ages. The stories and struggles shared will make you a better person, regardless of your profession and where you are in life. I love it; by far, my favorite thing to listen

Greatest podcast of all time!!!!

The podcasts here that David creates are the best of all time.

Start from episode one and listen to them all in order.

I feel like David shares the lives, experiences and lessons from the people in the biography which is inspiring.

But even more inspiring is that if you listen to enough episodes David also shares about his life here and there and it is this side of the podcast that really inspires me.

You get to experience David’s journey of how he tries to create the podcast for the masses in his own way.
