This is my attempt at bringing more fun and comedy into the dry business world.

What is up? I'm Steve Young not that Steve Young hence the Steve P. Young. He played football, I played badminton. He's tall, I'm short. He's handsome, I'm okay looking (but handsome for an Asian).

I love talking to people especially entrepreneurs. I love hearing stories of how they grew up and what made them become an entrepreneur.

And I love playing games. I'm tired of listening to the same old business podcast about marketing, growing a business, etc.

Business is fun, so let's have some fun!

    15: James Setzer on Side Hustles and the BLM Movement

    James Setzer is the founder at DreamBuilders Simple Solutions. We talk about the movement and how we can all do better when it comes to racial equality.

    Listen to part 1 on the App Masters Podcast where James shares how he finds profitable app ideas and positions them in a competitive market. Plus two strategies that I absolutely love: 1) how he uses giveaways to get his initial downloads and ratings; 2) how he studies the newest, top grossing apps to see what they are doing right.

Fun and Informative

This is a great podcast that gives listeners insights on the thought process behind successful game entrepreneurs. But it’s not just informative, it’s really fun to listen to! I look forward to the upcoming episodes 😊

Steve is smart fun and an effective interviewer

I have known Steve for a while now and one of his two characteristics that make the podcasts so valuable is that he is kind, approachable and he asks real good questions so his guests share great information.

I’m not a gamer and I never use my time this way but I do know there are applicable lessons to learn across all industries so I’m excited to listen and learn. Way to go Steve breaking through the New Years resolution ice jams to do this.
