Practical, down to earth, inspiring ….

Chris provides a very listenable podcast that is just the right length to get the point across. He is a wonderful story teller.

There are no unnecessary histrionics that one finds on so many podcasts and YouTube videos these days. Each episode solid and well-produced and a pleasure to listen to.

Although I have read all of his books, somehow I only discovered this podcast recently so I have been consuming episodes at the rate of six or seven a day. I’ll be disappointed when I catch up and only have one per day!

Inspiring and relatable

Love the simple format and relatability of the case studies. Makes you feel like having a business is possible and you don’t have to be a Mark Zuckerberg to be an ‘entrepreneur’ but still be successful and create a significant additional /alternative income stream. Great job!

Great podcast!

I love the fast pace of these podcasts. There are some truly inspirational stories here, with some great insight into how you make can make things work for you. I love Chris’ sense of humour - those puns! 👌🏻
