Self-Made is a myth. The truth is no one ever does it alone. We need other people to lean on and to learn from. The Community Made Podcast is an all access pass to lessons, learnings, and key insights from the world’s most fascinating entrepreneurs including Gary Vaynerchuk, Naveen Jain, Tim Ferris, and Shep Gordon. People who are not only winning in business, but winning in life as well. They say that an entrepreneur is someone who goes from working in their business to on their business. But there’s another level of entrepreneur who goes from working on their business to working on themselves. That’s who this podcast is for. My philosophy is that if I am transparent about my story, you can leverage my wins while at the same time avoiding my losses. Because in the words of Charlie Munger, "everyone learns from experience, but I’d rather learn from the experiences of others."

Binging and overloaded with great info!

Trying to clean the garage on a Sunday and was going to hold off on writing a review until I was done listening for the day, but just had to write a review after listening to Vanessa Van Edwards and UJ Ramdas. WOW!!! Can’t wait to listen to all the other episodes and come back to this one! I run a non-profit, but the insight and advice is so easily adaptable to every facet of business and life! Thank you, Jayson!!!

Gold

This is some of the best advice I have ever heard, fully implementable in my business and life. S2E3 is what I needed today. I’m sure there will be more nuggets to come. Thanks to Jamie Swanson for the introduction!

Now I understand how top entrepreneurs think

Have never been a top level entrepreneur but I would like to work with a few who have been keystone contributors to industries that are near to my heart. Jayson’s experience, remarkable results, and unbridled openness in authentically sharing his ups and downs of maneuvering inside that realm has given me a few tools that should help me with my own mission. Thank You, Jayson. And thank you Jamie Swanson for recommending this incredibly valuable resource.
