Podcast with a difference

I love truth & honesty. I love diversity & topics that go straight to the source & just make sense to me. A breathe of fresh air. I Love Monty’s approach 👊🏾

Adamhoulahan ,

A must for all business owners

Not your average podcast on entrepreneurship. Monty goes much deeper than the basic topics. Like everything else he does this will be a world class resource.

Joshua754689 ,

Not for everyone

Monty does an excellent job of questioning the common narrative. Certainly not for everyone but one podcast I’m excited to see grow over the current decade.
