    Taking Comfortable Risks with Scott Galloway

    When is a risk with taking? We have to learn to embrace the comfortable risks - the ones where the pain of failure is worthwhile or even valuable.

    Podcaster, author and NYU professor, Scott Galloway and I talk about a lot of things including our concern that our youngest generation is too afraid of the risks worth taking and how that may be adversely affecting them.

The Best Podcast

It’s truly inspiring with lot to take in learning from best in class mindset and with their experience. I feel privileged to listen the Simon’s podcast.
I love the way Simon asks questions and then interpret the answer to show the philosophy and the nature of the speaker with their own answers! The question is, “What is your happy early childhood memory?”.
I would like to ask the same question to Simon. 😀

Simon, you are a rock star 💫

As always, as expected, it’s all about mind set. I love your work and this was even better. More power to you!

My dose of oxytocin!

Listening to Simon fills me with so much of positivity and kindness. Every episode of the podcast inspires me to be a better person, give as much to others around me as I can without any expectations.
The way Simon summarises every podcast in the end gives me goosebumps because the message hits right where it’s supposed to. Thank you for being so beautifully optimistic Simon :)
