Great insights

This podcast was just put on my radar yesterday and I’ve already binge listened to 5 - 6 episodes. Love the format and the hosts.

Don’t be an idiot.

As a life long entrepreneur who’s unemployable I find it a challenge to find solid content to listen too and learn the right things from. These guys resonate with me on so many levels AND what hits home with me is the eclectic content they bring to their audience. Wether you’re just starting or a seasoned entrepreneur this podcast is for you. Don’t be an idiot and listen to this podcast.
