Invaluable lesson

This podcast is money. Listening to all of the spitballing about business ideas really gets the creative juices going. The amount of actionable ideas and advice shared each episode is seriously SO valuable. Listening to this can make a real and lasting, positive impact on your entrepreneurial journey (whether you’ve started it or not).

Learning greatness

I waited to leave a review before commenting to see if Shawn and Sam could continue to deliver.
They do, every show is a brief education in business and generating ideas.
Sam and Shan balance out the show because of their personality contrast.
Sam is hyper and driven, almost insane yet he executes so we’ll and his research skills are off the charts, like a brilliant maniac.
Shan is analytical and can point out similarities between ideas and other businesses,.
They play well together, so much so I subscribed to Trends.co and love being part of that mastermind community.
Thanks guys for sharing the “ behind the curtains “ view.
Keep rolling!
