My name is Shan Hanif and I help people become entrepreneurs through my company Genflow. This podcast is not your normal self help, motivation, business advice so if you are looking for that then this is NOT for you.
This is a real life, raw, actual breakdown of what my life is like running a growing business, what I do each day, how I push forwards, deal with problems, hire and fire people, build huge brands, help other people achieve their goals so if your looking to start your own business, are a founder or work at a fast growth company you will like what I have to say. Thanks!

EP 27 - You Don't Need Mentorship

EP 24 - 5 Lessons Of Being An Entrepreneur | Growth Mindset
It's been 6 years since I launched Genflow, and in this episode i give you the no-nonsense of being an entrepreneur and everything I have learnt as a startup CEO. Most books or gurus won’t tell you this. The cashflow of the business, the growth mindset and getting the most of your team, I cover it all. Sit back and let me know your thoughts.
Truthful & Insightful
This podcast gives you the raw uncut truth of what life as an entrepreneur really is. Shan even states in the first episode how this is not be taken as a ‘Motivational talk’ & nor is it going to make you rich.
As a budding entrepreneur myself I find it very relatable whereas other entrepreneurs as big as Shan tend to brush over the gritty details of an entrepreneur he goes into detail of everything, from his journey after leaving accounting to now securing 11million in investment.
I look forward to the future episodes & the invaluable advice I will take from it & hopefully me & Shans paths can cross in business sometime.
You can make what you want of what Shan has achieved but what stands out about this podcast and his videos is how honest and real he is in a very hard and practical way. There’s no one else that comes to mind that gives advice as practical and perspectives and deep and insightful into business and particularly the marketing industry. A very inspirational guy, you’ll hear the reality of the business world even if it isn’t what might be the most “sellable” or attractive reality to hear.
One of the best podcasts for entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs
It’s not often that I write out reviews for podcasts but this is nothing short of spectacular - Shan’s insights into the realities of entrepreneurship in a time where fake gurus glamourise the idea that entrepreneurship is all about working 4 hours a week and having freedom is massively appreciated
