Real stories from real entrepreneurs!

Great podcast for people who are thinking of starting their own company!

You Entrepreneurs! PAY ATTENTION!

I've been searching for a great podcast to keep reflecting on my startup journey. I’d say The Simon Tefula Show is no doubt the best out of the best. I think I can say this because I’ve actually subscribed quite a few different podcasts on the similar topics. The reality is, despite the topic, a lot of hosts would still invite senior managers at big corporates as the guests.

Most of the times, their way of doing things is simply not applicable to startup founders.
And THIS ONE IS DIFFERENT. The guests invited to Simon’s show are real-life entrepreneurs who have experienced those ups and downs. It really supports me knowledge-wise and mentality-wise.

Highly recommended! Would give my 1000 stars if iTune allows me.
