Olga from Dream Big Podcast ,

Excellent show Alejandro. Love the episode with Amir Hemmat.

Just. Wow! This podcast is incredible. Guests are amazing. I am feeling particularly inspired by the latest episode with Amir Hemmat. I loved how Alejandro had Amir start at the beginning - from his childhood through college to his path in social entrepreneurship. It is awe inspiring to hear stories of founders who have been working on their mission for their entire adult career, in Amir’s case nearly two decades now! It busts the myth that you create a billion dollar company overnight, and instead shows what it truly takes to start from nothing and build an amazing business, in this case one that is helping millions of people. “No Margin, No Mission. No Mission, No Margin.” Love that quote Amir — need to put that on a poster. Keep up the good work Alejandro and bring us more amazing guests like Amir.

Mark Colgan ,
