Candid convos

Authentic and offbeat thoughts and anecdotes. The episode with Daniel Lim is my favourite so far. Appreciate the show notes on the blog that tell you the topics within each conversation.

Interesting content all the way

It's good to hear some fresh perspectives from those who are different and didn't follow the usual route to success. I'm still torn about whether or not it could be shorter. It's good to have an in-depth conversation, in a very conversational coffee chat way; but I thought it could be more concise.
