A better kind of Dr. Feelgood!

I am biased, I know this guy. But for real, this is good stuff. Easy to listen to, he doesn’t get in the way of his guests. If you need to hear a great story, give it a listen. Some great stories from mostly entrepreneurs!! Well done sir, and the production is great.

Not just for “businessmen”

I feel inspired after each episode - not only in ways to grow my very small side business, but to just be a better, more dedicated and vision-filled person. Thanks for creating such great wholesome content that speaks to my soul!

Entrepreneurs are the lifeblood of America!

70% of the US economy is run by small business. This podcast gives great insight into the minds of these risk takers and job creators! As an educator, I believe we need more of these stories shared to inspire more young people to use their creativity to become entrepreneurs rather than just encouraging students to go to college. I’ve really enjoyed listening and learning and look forward to more!
