Really insightful

Been listening to My First Million for a few months now and it is always a great listen.

The guys have a good structure to the show and as well as some quality guests, the part I particularly like is when they discuss different business ideas and give their opinion.

As a Business teacher I often get my students to listen to the show - would recommend!
