The Best Podcast!

Every single episode is encouraging and insightful. Hearing so many stories of entrepreneurs going their struggles is so “real” and authentic. Success comes from failures and Bryan & Maggie do a wonderful job of highlighting the Asian community. Thank you guys for all that you do! A must subscribe!

Amy M. Le ,

Relevant and powerful

Thank you for bringing impactful and inspiring stories to the forefront on our community. The more stories we share the more we close the social divide and tear down bigotry. You have great influencers on the show who’ve built a roadmap for us to follow & I hope you’ll share more grassroots stories as well as we’re all in different stages of our journey.

👍🏻Eric ,

Love the show except…

What a great show to learn about the journey of inspiring Asians! The only negative would be excessively grandiose intro/outro music - it feels too heavy and old-fashioned for relatively casual conversation to be unfold with guests.
