Great Guests and Great Content

Reading some of the negative comments here drives me a little crazy. A great show with stellar guests talking openly and candidly about their experiences and overall philosophies on mastering scale. Reid's enthuasism is infectious and I've being binging on this series since I discovered it only a few months ago.

A great motivator for anyone interested in starting their own business and some really interesting life lessons from people who have been there and done it. Although Reid tends to try and draw connections bewteen many of the founders I actually find the variety of different approaches particularly interesting and an acknowledgment that there really is no playbook. Just need to stay in the game and ride your luck when it presents itself.

Thanks Reid and guests for making me take the long way home everyday from work!

Scale

This is great stuff! I highly recommend the Masters of scale book also. An absolute essential for any business students who wants to understand the inverse laws of physics in the tech sector!

Brilliant mashup of a movie meets Harvard business review!

My love of Barry Diller brought me to this podcast and I’m delighted it did. The podcast not only curates content from today’s greatest entrepreneurs, but Reid brings a warmth and affability to each interview, whilst delivering real and actionable insights. It a podcast that feels like a movie thanks to amazing sound engineering. Well done. A must listen to.
