A Great Start to the Day

Insightful and great interviews!

Love this concept. Anyone can be a sensei in their own right and it’s great to hear pieces of wisdom that have worked for different individuals and their perspectives on different topics.

Really insightful and authentic!

I love how they're talking to real people and not just CEOs. I like hearing people's stories and they've actually got some great bits of advice. 10/10 will keep listening
